Bodegas Coviñas enjoyed one of its most memorable moments this week as, in addition to topping the medal-winners’ board at PROAVA, its Enterizo Bobal rosé was yesterday selected by the Utiel-Requena DOP as the most representative wine of this type. This is recognition that the winery is top of the pile when it comes to working with this native Valencian variety, one that is particularly identified with the Utiel-Requena DOP.
Enterizo Bobal rosé was judged the most representative wine in the Bobal rosé category by the DOP, as well as winning two Gold medals at the PROAVA awards, one in the official single-varietal competition and the other in the rosé category at this VI official PROAVA wine competition.
As the UR DOP explained, Enterizo Bobal rosé comes from 100% selected Bobal grapes to obtain this seductive and aromatic wine. After cold maceration and gentle pressing, the wine is transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where the clean must ferments before being bottled, after tangential flow filtration.
The wine is bright pink in colour with hints of violet. It has a sweetness on the nose evocative of strawberry chewing gum, jelly beans and fresh cream. The palate is fresh, fruity and balanced with a smooth yet lingering finish.
Alongside this double recognition for one of its most prized wines, Grupo Coviñas also swept the board by winning all three PROAVA medals in the Cava category. The medal winners were Enterizo Brut which was awarded a Gold Medal, Aula Brut which won a Silver Medal and Aula Brut Nature Reserva which earned a Bronze Medal, proving once again that the best Cavas are made by Coviñas. The Coviñas group brings together 3,000 families, who will be able to raise glasses filled to the brim with their own Cava this Christmas.
In addition to the two Gold medals awarded by PROAVA to Enterizo Rosé, Coviñas racked up a grand total of 10 medals: 4 Gold, 4 Silver and 2 Bronze. These medals were won by the following wines:
