Since Aplauz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2017 won GOLD at the World Cup for Cabernets, “Concours International des Cabernets”, now it is time for Aplauz Syrah Reserve 2017 to wine SILVER at the World Cup for Syrah “Syrah du Monde”.
The 15th annual edition of Syrah du Monde took place June 1-2, 2021 at the Château d’Ampuis in the village of Ampuis in northern Rhone Valley, Côte-Rôtie appellation, France, considered one of the world’s best terroirs for Syrah. 287 wine samples of Syrah/Shiraz wines from 25 countries were tasted. The judges tasted in accordance with the International Rules.
We are proud and honored to be awarded among the best Syrah’s in the world.
A month later, our Aplauz Syrah Reserve 2017 won GOLD at the Balkans International Wine Competition 2021. Our Aplauz Viognier Sur Lie 2020 also received GOLD from the Balkans competition. Syrah and Viognier are the typical varieties grown in the Rhone Valley, and we are very happy that our wines are building a bridge between the Rhone Valley and the Melnik region.
