Castelo de Medina Verdejo Vendimia Seleccionada 2011 was the top scoring of the five, with 92 points in its first vintage.
It's been just over a month since the publication of latest Penin Guide, a leading wine guide in Spain that tastes and evaluates almost 10,000 wines every year.
In the 2013 edition, Bodegas Castelo de Medina has broken its own record, with five of its wines achieving a score of 90 or over, positioning them in the “excellent” category.
Our winery's greatest success in the Peñín Guide 2013 has been the “début” of Castelo de Medina Verdejo Vendimia Seleccionada 2011, which achieved a score of 92 points with the first vintage in its short history.
A further three of our wines were awarded 91 points: Castelo de Medina Verdejo 2011, Castelo de Medina Sauvignon Blanc 2011 and Syté 2008 (which has the geographic indication ‘Wines of the Land of Castilla y León’).
Finally, we would mention another wine to achieve 90 points, Castelo de la Dehesa 2011, which was also mentioned as excellent value for money.
The average score achieved by the wines entered in the Penin Guide 2013 was 87.8 points. A further two wines from Bodegas Castelo de Medina, Real Castelo 2011 and Castelo Noble 2009, did even better with 89 and 88 points respectively.
