4 red wines and 1 white wins gold at the summer tasting
4300 wines tasted
Results of the monstre German wine contest Mundus Vini Summer Tasting were announced on 6 September. A total of 16 Grand Gold, 703 Gold and 1001 Silver medals were awarded at the 21st Grand International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI. Nearly 4300 wines from 42 of the world’s wine-growing areas were blind tasted and rated by the 164 jury of experts, who travelled here from 41 countries specifically for this event. ‘The Summer Tasting shows how positively the wine offering has developed in recent years. Among the top wines, we had the pleasure of sampling some amazing quality wines, and among the more basic qualities were some that were extremely pleasant to drink. We are delighted that, once again this year, the winners included a wide range of wines and price categories. From easy-drinking to highly ambitious top wines, there is plenty of choice for any occasion and wallet,’ adds Director of Degustation Christian Wolf.
5 Hungarian gold medals
Among the five gold winners four of them are full bodied, aged red wines, really „big things”, but the biggest pride is probably the dry white wine from Eger, which is made of the indigenous Leányka grape. The same Egri Leányka Superior by Egri Borvár has recently been chosen Wine of the Month by VinCE Magazine. As the experts of the panel tasting say: it has a medium intense greenish yellow colour. The nose is reminiscent of ripened, fresh, juicy peach. The palate follows the nose with its richness of fruits. Great intensity again on the palate with a good body, zesty notes and long lasting finish.
