Algodon Grand Cuvee
We’re pleased to share that our Grand Cuvee 2012 was recently awarded a gold medal for "Oaked Malbec Blend" from the Drink's Business 2020 Global Malbec Masters competition.
The Drink's Business Global Masters is a series of blind tasting competitions, judged by the finest palates in the world: a panel of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, and senior buyers only. All preconceived ideas about the importance of location are pushed to one side as wines from across the world are judged on the taste of their grapes, the skill of their winemakers, and their respective price classes. The top wines were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze medals according to their result, and those expressions that stood out as being outstanding in their field received the ultimate accolade: the title of Malbec Master.
The competition was judged over two days in November 2020 at the Novotel London Bridge Hotel, and judged by Patrick Schmitt MW, David Round MW and Simon Field MW. The Drinks Business announcement of the 2020 Global Malbec Masters competition award winners can be found online here.
"We are all so pleased to see our wines receive such esteemed acclaim from the Drinks Business Global Malbec Masters," said Scott Mathis, Founder and Chairman of Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc, which wholly owns and operates Algodon Fine Wines. "This recognition stands as a testament to the skill and dedication of our first-class winemaker, Mauro Nosenzo, as well as our supporting wine team and wine advisors. We are excited about the continued roll out of our wines via e-commerce in the U.S. and in South America, and support such as this only adds to our ability to reach new audiences. We are grateful to the Drinks Business for giving us the opportunity to show the world what we're made of."
Congratulations to our winemaker, Mauro Nosenzo, as well as to our entire wine team!
