Estella National Competiton

The Second National Organic Wines competition was held in Estella (Navarra) on the 24th November. 24 Cellars presented 64 wines from throughout Spain. The Pinot Noir - Merlot Clàssic 2006 and Xarel·lo Clàssic 2006 were selected for the final receiving a Silver and Bronze medal respectively. These two young wines underline the quality of the 2006 vintage.

The tasting was judged by thirteen well-known tasters from Navarra, Rioja, Aragon and Madrid who chose the medal winners from 27 wines that reached the final.

Evena (The Navarra Viticultute and Oenology Station) analysed the winning wines to ensure they met the required criteria and on 30th November the prizes were awarded at the Casa de Cultura d'Estella.

Both the tasters and Julián Subervola, director of Evena and head of the tasting team, agreed that the quality of this years' wines was very good.
