Ecovino, the organic wines contest
The ninth edition of the Ecovino Awards was held on May 3 and 4 at the La Rioja Scientific-Technological Complex. The awards ceremony will take place on June 22 in Logroño. The Ecovino Awards jury has been chaired by Antonio Palacios, Professor of Sensory Analysis at this university, and has included thirty national and international tasters of recognized prestige. In total, they evaluated 232 wines from 30 wine-growing regions. A total of ten wines from the La Mancha region received a medal, of which seven have Tierra de Castilla Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and three have the La Mancha Denomination of Origin (DO), one of the latter being organic white Mundo de Yuntero 2017.

Since its creation, Ecovino has aimed to promote and recognize the production of wines from organic farming, thus promoting respect and care for the environment. Bodegas Yuntero is a pioneer in Castilla-La Mancha in the production of organic wines. In 1992, he opted for their elaboration and launched them on the market under the Mundo de Yuntero brand. Precisely in this year 2018 the winery celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of the birth of its Eco wines.

Epilogue Sauvignon Blanc 2017, silver medal at Vinalies
This white wine from Bodegas Yuntero, with the Designation of Origin La Mancha, is made with the Sauvignon Blanc (90%) and small grain Muscatel (10%) grape varieties. Each variety is worked separately to later make the final blend.

It is a bright, pale yellow wine with great aromatic intensity. The floral and exotic aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc variety (grapefruit, mango, passion fruit) are very well integrated with the muscatel tones of the Muscatel variety. On the palate, it is a very fresh wine, with good volume. It has a honeyed, soft and silky sensation. The small natural carbonic point that the wine has gives it freshness. The palate is long and persistent.
