The results are in for the 46th National Wine Competition Vino Slovenija, which took place between 13th and 16th July, in Gornja Radgona.
With 3 grand gold medals, 6 gold medals, and 10 silver medals (of the twenty samples submitted for assessment), Klet Brda has reaffirmed the consistent quality of its wines. Excelling at this year’s competition, was Bagueri Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, which scored 92.6 points and was awarded the highest title Champion. Among the wines with the highest scores are also Bagueri Chardonnay, Bagueri Rebula, and Quercus Sauvignon Blanc, all recipients of grand gold medals. With Bagueri Merlot receiving a gold medal, all four Baqueri wines submitted for the competition were awarded the highest decorations, asserting the premium quality of the Baqueri line, which year after year excels at domestic and international wine competitions, receiving the most medals. Quercus wines were awarded 2 gold medals for Cabernet Sauvignon and Rebula and 3 silver medals for Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Krasno line received 3 gold medals for Ribolla Gialla, Pinot Noir, and White blend, and 1 silver medal for Syrah.
Bagueri Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 impressed the evaluators in Gornja Radgona with its deep ruby red colour with purple hues, distinct aroma of blackcurrant, plum jam, cocoa, and chocolate, and a velvety full-bodied taste with sweet tanins, which combined with the aroma of vanilla create an extremely harmonious and complex wine. Grapes for Bagueri Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 were picked manually in terraced vineyards with SW and SE position. Fermentation took place in French barriques and large oak barrels. The wine then matured 80% in French barriques and 20% in large oak barrels for at least 24 months.
Most of this year’s international competitions postponed
Winemakers will remember 2020 also by the cancellation of both major wine fairs in Verona and Düsseldorf and the postponement of most of the significant wine competitions. However, at the beginning of the year, Klet Brda wines received important awards at some of the competitions that did take place. At Sommelier Wine Awards (Great Britain), we received a bronze medal for Quercus Rebula 2019 and a gold medal for Querus Cabernet Merlot 2018, while Quercus Chardonnay 2019 was awarded a silver medal at Chardonnay du Monde (France).
