Terrunyo takes highest trophies at International Wine Challenge



Terrunyo Carmenere 2010 received a Gold Medal and the Carmenere Trophy, and the 2012 Terrunyo Riesling received a Gold Medal, the Chilean White Trophy, and the Casablanca Riesling Trophy.

Now in its 30th year, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) is one of the most respected wine competitions in the world. In this anniversary edition, the IWC awarded 514 gold medals and 137 trophies. The medal-winning wines were tasted at least three times by the judges, and the trophies were tasted six times.

The 2010 Terrunyo Carmenere comes from the renowned Block 27 of the Peumo Vineyard. “This is an elegant and classic wine from Peumo,” said Terrunyo winemaker Ignacio Recabarren, “It has very good quality tannins that are smooth yet firm. It is a powerful wine with tremendous potential for aging.

The 2012 Terrunyo Riesling comes from the Los Boldos Vineyard located in the coldest sector of the Casablanca Valley, just 15 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Block 6, where the grapes for this wine grow, is one of the coldest at Los Boldos. The vines are planted in the highest part of the vineyard, where coastal exposure, breezes, and shade moderate the temperatures and allow the grapes to ripen slowly.

These awards, which will be presented in a special ceremony in July, reflect the importance of the Terrunyo line for the company and the challenge of positioning Chile as a country that produces high-quality wines. They are also the result of the constant and passionate search to identify the terroirs that faithfully express the character of a variety.
