Two gold medals to Testament's winemakers at the world's largest wine competition
"The Decanter Awards show that the Dalmatian wines are steadily growing in world recognition. It is extremely satisfying for Zhoda that the two Dalmatian gold medal wines were produced by two wine makers that now make Testament wines. We are very fortunate to have Juraj and Igor onboard to continually raise the standards of our wines to become Dalmatia's finest. We are looking forward to medals being awarded to the Testament wines in future competitions. I recommend our shareholders and wine lovers to order the limited number of bottles of Testament Babic and Testament Posip now available at Systembolaget", says Robert Karlsson, CEO of Zhoda Investments.
Decanter Awards and two Dalmatian gold medals
More than 270 of the world's top wine experts gathered in London earlier in May to start judging the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards. Close to 17,000 wines were judged with ten Croatian wines winning gold medals, two of them from Dalmatia.
Korlat Syrah 2014 is a red wine produced at Benkovac Winery within Badel 1862. It received a gold medal. Juraj Sladic, wine maker and head of Testament's operations in Sibenik, was previously winemaker at Benkovac Winery with a 180-hectare vineyard and a production of over 500,000 bottles per year.
Nerica 2016 Posip is a white wine from the Dalmatian island of Korcula. It received the second of the Dalmatian gold medals in this year's Decanter Awards. Igor Radovanovic, wine maker and head of Testament's operations in Smokvica, is Dalmatia's leading maker of Posip wines and also the enologist behind this award-winner. This is the first gold medal not only for the island of Korcula and a Posip wine, but also for a white indigenous variety.
Zhoda Investments recently acquired the Smokvica winery on Korcula to make elegant and fresh white wines from the Posip grape. It was discovered by chance by a farmer on the island almost 150 years ago, and has since then become the most popular white grape in Dalmatia.
The wineries in Dalmatia owned by Zhoda Investments market their organic wines under the Testament brand. A Testament to the rich wine growing past - combining Dalmatia's two thousand year old winemaking tradition with the most talented new generation winemakers.
