Reserva Martí reaches 30 Gold medals (1 platinum)

12 international competitions (Germany, Catalonia, France, Spain, Switzerland and Austria) have awarded our icon wine, Reserva Martí, with Gold medals over the last 10 years and it has now accumulated a total of twenty-nine Gold plus one Platinum.

The last competition in which it has been given this recognition was two-fold, specifically in the “Mundus Vinus-Biofach International Competition", which has awarded Reserva Martí with a gold medal for the 2007 vintage and another for the 2008.

Amongst the most awarded vintages of Reserva Martí the 2004 stands out with 13 medals (1 platinum, 9 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze ) and the 2007,which is now on sale, with 12 medals (6 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze)

For the 2007 vintage, which we can still find in shops and restaurants, we should add the favourable score obtained in the “2014 Guide to Catalan Wines” with 9,15 points out of 10 and the “2014 Peñín Guide” with 93 points out of 100.

Reserva Martí, as you know, is also well-known for its label design, a little minimalist, that symbolises the first coupage wine made in the cellar, with “Martí’s” hands, Josep M. Albert’s son, , with the original picture extracted from the youngster’s work when he was in P-3.

Clear homage to the future generations with our most exceptional wine. The coupage is always made with the autochthonous variety, Tempranillo, as the base, accompanied by Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

The grape is carefully selected in the vineyard where a whole plot is never picked, just some parts of each one, which are the ones that maintain the perfect equilibrium between vegetation and production and which, precisely for this reason, are the ones that ripen at their optimum moment. The picking is always by hand, in small boxes and later, in the cellar, the grapes go to the selection table where 14 people choose the best grapes one by one and they are then fermented in the vats.

The 24 month refining process in French oak barrels gives it aromatic complexity, silkiness and elegance that can be discerned in the mouth.

Reserva Martí is undoubtedly a wine with personality and we, the 27 people working in the vineyard, the cellar and the cellar house, are very proud of it.

If you still haven’t tried our 2007 vintage, you should before it finishes.
