This year, Fanagoria Estate Winery for the second time took part in the prestigious tasting competition, International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI Summer Tasting 2019, that was held in Germany. Our wines showed an impressive result: we won two gold medals (including the champion title in the nomination Best of Show Russia), and a silver award.
- One Hundred & One Shades of Red Saperavi Fanagoria 2017 – gold medal, Best of Show Russia
- Cru Lermont Chardonnay 2017 – gold medal
- One Hundred & One Shades of Red Cabernet Sauvignon Fanagoria 2016 – silver medal
Roman Tcaciuc, Fanagoria’s red winemaker: “A new high award given to Saperavi Fanagoria has once again proved that this indigenous Caucasian grape variety develops excellently and can give marvelous results in our region.”
Gold medals were given to the wines that earned at least 90/100 points; silver medals – to the wines getting at least 85/100 points. According to the regulation, max. 40% samples of the total number of nominees could be given medals. This is why our two wines got high scores but were given no medals – Cru Lermont Pinot Noir 2017, 85/100, and Fanagoria Extra Brut 2016, 86/100.
The list of the awards included 14 Big Gold, 818 gold and 928 silver medals. The jury panel consisted of 170 wine experts from 45 countries.
