Two times gold – including a Grand Gold medal, the highest award of the competition - and one bronze medal: these are the impressing results for Espíritu de Chile at this year’s Monde Selection International Wine Contest 2008 in Brussels.


Espíritu de Chile Shiraz-Cabernet 2006 was able to highly impress the jury of this renowned competition and received the highest award possible for its outstanding quality. The dark red Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon blend captivated with its intense aromas of dried plums, which unite in perfect harmony with touches of vanilla and coffee.


Additionally the Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2005 was honoured with a gold medal and the Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé reached a bronze award. All three medals further enhance the brand’s positioning as a premium Chilean wine range of excellent quality. All Espíritu de Chile wines originate from the Chilean Valle Central and are carefully selected according to severe quality criteria before treated by chief winemaker Jon Usabiaga.


Monde Selection represents one of the oldest and most influential organisations in terms of quality examination and has been established as official institution by the Belgium government already in 1961. Each year an international and unbiased jury of top representatives of the wine business is gathered for this important wine judgement. All results can be seen at in the category Wine Results 2008.


The “Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin” (O.I.V) granted its official High Patronage for the 2008 International Wine Contest of Monde Selection. The contest will took place in Brussels, Belgium in March 2008.
