The maximum award given by the Unión Española de Catadores in their 30th edition has been to Ochoa Moscatel Late Harvest 2015.
The sweet wine has been recently awarded for the second time with a Gold Medal in the international contest Muscats du Monde, assuring its position in the “Top Ten” of sweet wines of the world in 2014.
Now, Ochoa Moscatel 2015 achieves an award very valuable in the Spanish market by a judge of 50 professionals members of the UEC in a strict blind tasting. Among the judges we find sommeliers such as Custodio Lopez-Zamarra, Javier Gila, Daniel Poveda o Luis García de la Navarra, winemakers José Hidalgo Togores, Ignacio de Miguel, Mayte Sánchez or Jorge Navascúes, Purchasing managers such as Andrea Alonso (MAKRO) or Jaime Bermúdez (Vinoselección) and directors of the following magazines: Salvador Manjón from La Semana Vitivinícola, Andrés Proensa from Planetavino or Mayte Lapresta from Sobremesa. All of them prove that Premios Baco is a very difficult award to obtain given its independence.
Javier Ochoa, creator of the wine Ochoa Moscatel says “Ochoa Moscatel is a winner. Not only for the amount of awards that has received but for the loyalty of the buyers and consumers and the happiness that this means to us. It is a delicate wine, made from a selection of grapes of moscatel de grano menudo and from a delicate process of winemaking”.
His daughter, Adriana, winemaker of the winery highlights that “Ochoa Moscatel has been more than 20 years in the market. In today’s changing market, this is a privilege because it means that it has its customers. This wine was created by my father and I continue making it with all the care in the world to make it perfect.
The challenge now is to make the young people try it. Youngsters… try it! It is very good!”.
