Rieslings again! Results from Prague Wine Trophy arrived

It's been about half a year since we told you that our Rieslings got a lot of prizes at the prestigious French Concours des Grands Vins Blancs du Monde. Now there are similarly nice news from the Prague Wine Trophy, the biggest Czech competition in terms of the number of samples being evaluated.

Three of our Rieslings scored more than 90 points. And Riesling 2015 VOC has become the best wine of this variety in the Czech Republic. Among the first five best Rieslings was the only one from Czech, the other four were from Germany or Austria. Its final score is 92.8 points, and so the entire next year we can be proud to have the Prague Regional Champion. And you can still get it in our e-shop.

We say Rieslings are our flagship and and we think it should stay that way is also proved by the awards for his siblings from other years. Riesling Noble Rot (with noble mold) has reached 90.8 points for the tasters and the Prague Premium Gold label. And just two tenths of a point less has earned Riesling 2016 VOC.

As far as the successes in the competitions are concerned, we have another favorite. Merlot 2015 was very much appreciated by the Oenoforum 2018 and now, the results from Prague Wine Trophy confirm it’s status. Merlot 2015 became Prague Wine Trophy the best rated Czech wine in its category. With a result of 90.7 points, so it means another wine with the title Prague Regional Champion. Also this wine, which has matured for 12 months in new French medium-toasted barrique barrels, can still be bought at the e-shop.
