The International Wine Challenge (IWC), in its 38th edition, is considered the most rigorous, impartial and influential annual wine competition in the world. Wineries from 52 countries participate and each wine is tested at least 3 times by experts from the international wine industry.
The wine tasting is carried out blind and each reference is evaluated taking into account the fidelity to the style, the region and the vintage. In this 2021 edition, Cavas Bohigas has been awarded 2 silver medals for the following products:
- Cava Bohigas Brut Reserva. 92 points (silver medal)
In the tasting, the experts have also defined their tasting notes on this cava: "Nectarine, lemon zest and toasted sourdough, wet palate with lime and honey and praline. Pleasant balance and finish."
- Cava Bohigas Extra Brut Gran Reserva. 91 points (silver medal)
The tasting note according to the IWC defines it as: "Lightly toasted nose with attractive aromas of peach and white flower and a smooth, firm-strength finish.
Why is the IWC competition different?
An IWC medal winning wine is tasted by a minimum of 8 judges before being awarded. International wine buyers and retailers respect the rigorous process and open the doors to international business communication.
All wines are tasted blind, without information on producers or prices. The wines are grouped by type, region, percentage of alcohol and sugar, ensuring that similar wines are valued together. All IWC wine results are hosted on the IWC website along with a bottle photo to ensure that trade and consumers can easily identify the winning wine.
