Numun Syrah 2013 from Bodegas San Isidro has obtained the maximum consideration granted by the UEC, the Golden Bacchus. This award recognizes Numun Syrah as one of the best vintage wines of Spain and joins to the record achieved by this wine in less than three months, as it recently obtained the gold medal at the Berliner Wine Trophy.

Therefore grapes arrive to the winery at a low temperature (14/17 º C) and the Biodynamic cycle of the vine makes it to forge its character at the time, and therein lies the reason for Numun. Then, a careful manual selection of grapes takes place.
