The latest March issue of Decanter includes an article by Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW entitled “10 Young Guns” featuring “10 new-generation winemakers who stand out from the crowd, setting new standards by pushing Spanish winemaking in different directions, developing long-disregarded terroirs or revitalising ancient native vine varieties.”
Pedro reviews one of the latest wines from Cuevas de Arom, giving it a score of 94 points – the highest yet received by the winery and a point of pride for a first release from DO Campo de Borja:
Os Cantals, Campo de Borja, Aragón 2015
“An amazingly complex and concentrated Garnacha – a precious jewel to be enjoyed in small sips. This is the true essence of Aragón.”
Fernando is proud to be among friends in the list with Pedro describing his career and the launch of wineries Frontonio and Cuevas del Arom. He was particularly flattered by the comment that, “In just a short time, Mora has become one of the leading players in the renaissance of Aragón Garnacha as a global fine wine grape.”
Aside from the 94 Decanter points, recent medal wins have included three international Gold medals: two at Mundus Vini for Botijo Rojo Garnacha 2016 and Botijo Rojo Viñas Viejas 2015 and at Berliner Wein Trophy for El Casetero Garnacha 2016 from Campo de Borja.
