The 27th edition of the Mundus Vini Spring Tasting international wine competition brought us good news. In addition to a Silver Medal, Quinta de Santa Cristina wines also conquered a Gold Medal! Discover which wines were distinguished in the contest.
Not all things were bad in 2020. Fruit of a very dry and hot Summer, our grapes reached high levels of either sugar and acidity, which gave the 2020 vintage’s wines an incredible body as well as a great evolution potential into the bottle.
Quinta de Santa Cristina Avesso 2020 white wine, highlighted by its structure, depth and body, surprised the jury at the moment of the tasting and conquered a very well-deserved Gold Medal. We like to call it our Golden Avesso. This is one of the few wines from Quinta de Santa Cristina range whose flavors incredibly suits the intense tastes of red meat dishes, making, thus, the perfect match. We still continue to surprise our customers when we tell them that we chose a wild boar dish to pair this wine in the day of its release, about 4 years ago, and the audience was speechless. Our Golden Avesso is a totally gastronomic wine, this is, it is an excellent wine to match strong flavors, as red meat, cheese and fat fish.
The second piece of good news is that Quinta de Santa Cristina Grande Escolha 2020 white wine was awarded Silver Medal at the international contest. This wine is the image of Quinta de Santa Cristina brand and it is the wine best representing the Basto sub-region of the Vinho Verde wine region in a general way. Grande Escolha is a fresh and aromatic wine with a well-balanced acidity. It is a wine which pleases the majority of Vinho Verde wine lovers, since it gathers all the particularities when we search for a typical Vinho Verde white wine.
