April 2016. Príncipe de Viana 1423 Reserva 2011 has received a Gold Medal from Challenge International du Vin.
Challenge International du Vin is the oldest and most prestigious international wine contest. In this year’s edition, Príncipe de Viana 1423 has competed against more than five thousand wines from 38 countries.
With a coupage of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Garnacha grapes, this Príncipe de Viana was made with the best grapes from selected vineyards in the estate. After ageing in French oak barrels and a long rest in the bottle, Príncipe de Viana 1423 Reserva is a big, complex wine that stands out for its broad array of aromas. Ripe cherries, blackberries, chocolate, pipe tobacco, cinnamon and toasted coffee. Persistent flavours that linger in the palate for ever.
Three more Príncipe de Viana wines also received Silver Medals: Príncipe de Viana Crianza, Príncipe de Viana Edición Limitada, y Príncipe de Viana Reserva.
Príncipe de Viana embraces the traditions of a land which has given wines of great quality and unequaled style over centuries. Being true to this land has earned this brand the recognition of international experts and critics, having received, to name but a few, excellent ratings from prestigious Guía Peñín, the American International Wine Cellar magazine, or The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker).
