El Miracle by Marical and Nebla Garnacha get a gold medal in the “Grenaches du Monde” wine challenge
“Grenaches du Monde” wine challenge has awarded two wines of Vicente Gandia with Gold Medal: “El Miracle by Mariscal” and “Nebla Garnacha”. Both red wines are made with the Grenache grape variety and with appellation of origin Valencia. The jury has been composed by a panel of judges comprising wine industry professionals and consultants from 15 different countries, each of whom have the tricky task of identifying by blind tasting the best wines from the grenache grape variety. Renowned and recognised for their skills, the tasters are sommeliers, journalists, wine merchants, oenologists and buyers, amongst other wine industry professionals, from different countries of the world, ensuring absolute objectivity in terms of the results.
“Grenaches du Monde” is the international competition of Grenache, an Iberian variety who rapidly became established in Mediterranean vineyards and around the world. It is one of the most widely planted grape variety in the world. The main objectives of the competition are: to encourage the promotion of premium-quality wines made from all different varieties of the Grenache grape, to boost the production of Grenache and encourage its consumption on an international scale, to showcase and promote the characteristics of the wines to the public worldwide and to help the consumer to identify the best Grenache wines based on worldwide production through a quality seal.
Nebla Garnacha is a fine wine with a Mediterranean character. It’s clean, brilliant and red colour with a deep robe and very luminous purple edge. It has an intensive and fragrant nose, dominant red fruit wrapped. Smooth on the palate, good acidity and meaty, defined tannins with a long berry-laden finish.
El Miracle by Mariscal is produced from a selection of hand-harvested Garnacha Tintorera grapes grown in 35 year old vines, located in the “Valentino” wine production area. The wine is produced using very slow maceration and alcoholic fermentation until the malolactic fermentation is complete, when the wine is poured into second fill French oak casks. This guarantees perfect blending between the Garnacha Tintorera varietal’s fruity character and the wood.
