The Spanish Association of Wine Journalists and Writers (AEPEV
, in its Spanish acronym) in its seventh edition of the Best Wines and Spirits of Spain
, has awarded the 2015 Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima
as the 2nd best rosé of Spain.
The AEPEV is an association of journalists, communication specialists, editors and writers of the wine industry and each year gives its awards recognizing the work of Spanish winemakers.
In this edition 786 brands have competed and after a two-round vote 153 wines and 36 spirits were distinguished.
The recognition for Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is yet another in the long history of one of the most emblematic wines
of Bodegas Ochoa
As Adriana Ochoa
, the winemaker of the winery, commented, one of the secrets to obtaining a high quality rosé lies in the saignée
(from French bleeding), a very demanding procedure since 5kgs of grapes
are needed to produce one bottle, but it certainly increases the quality of the wine
we want to congratulate Bodegas Ochoa, and particularly Adriana and Javier
, for bringing such exquisite wines, and encourage them to further develop their work with their characteristic passion.
