In the III edition of the wine competition “Catatalentos”, open for the first time to fortified wines, three Sherries won awards. Manzanilla Maruja from Juan Piñero took the crianza biológica award while the crianza oxidative went to Palo Cortado Leonor from González Byass and the sweet went to Moscatel Pasas from César Florido. The event is organised by the chemicals giant BASF who want to showcase the quality and variety of Spanish wines. Interestingly the winning wine were chosen in a blind tasting by the bodegueros, oenologists and growers themselves.
