The best Spanish wines of the 2014 ‘Nariz de Oro’ awards

It’s only been a couple weeks since the winners of the 2014 ‘Nariz de Oro’ awards were announced, the benchmark awards for professional Spanish sommeliers.

The 2014 edition of this ceremony saw Iván Martínez Hierro from La Tienda Colmado in Medina del Pomar (Burgos) win the award for ‘Best Nose’ in Spain. But sommeliers were not the only ones receiving awards. Here are some of the winning wines, all of which you can find on our website. Don’t miss them!


Finca Montico 2013: A delicious single varietal Verdejo from Marqués de Riscal in Rueda. Pleasant, elegant and subtle. A very intense white wine with aromas that don’t disappoint.

Arrayán 2013: Arrayán leaves this ceremony with the prize for best rosé. A coupage of up to four varieties produced in the D.O. Méntrida. Elegant and very expressive. Strawberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant, winegum, mineral notes and citric touches…a complex and fresh nose from a surprising rosé.

Perpetual 2011: The Priorat of Bodegas Torres didn’t leave the ceremony empty handed either. This traditional coupage of Garnacha and Cariñena is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. It’s intense with lots of character. Perpetual 2011 is a homage to Priorat aged wine. This wine’s got a long life ahead of it.

Torelló Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2009: We can’t end the blog without mentioning this brilliant sparkling wine that’s aged for no less than 40 months. A very fresh and polished cava with traditional creamy aromas owing to its long ageing.
