Among the results obtained in the 2022 edition of the benchmark guide to Spanish wine stands out ‘61’ Dorado en Rama, which has been recognised for the second successive occasion, with 95 Peñín points and was included in the section ‘Podium Wines’ – the best Spanish wines.
La Seca, 3 August de 2021.- The wines of Bodega Cuatro Rayas—a wine cooperative in DO Rueda that unites vineyards of almost 300 members in the provinces of Valladolid and Segovia—have earned a prominent place among the ratings of the prestigious Peñín Guide to Spanish wine in its 2022 edition, where up to nine Cuatro Rayas’ brands received scores of 90 points or over. Besides, five of them have received special recognition due to their value for money, which appears in the 2022 Peñín Guide as wines with 5 stars.
Among the scores obtained by the cooperative winery located in La Seca (Valladolid), it stands out the 95 points and five stars awarded to ‘61’ Dorado en Rama, reaching the same rating for the second year in a row in recognition of its excellence. This golden wine with oxidative and biological ageing was also included in the section Vinos de Podio (Podium Wines) of the Guide—a selection of the best Spanish wines where only 295 out of the 9300 tasted wines gained access. This wine is produced combining equal parts Verdejo variety—the most characteristic of designation of Origin Rueda—and Palomino Fino—a varietal doomed to disappear in the DO since its cultivation is forbidden. However, the cooperative from La Seca is taking good care of its century-old vines to continue producing the original wines in the area. With only a yearly saca (taking out), it is bottled without clarification or filtering.
Cuatro Rayas’ wines scoring +90 points on this Peñín Guide edition were the following:
