The IWC is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 12 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
Winning a medal at the International Wine Challenge is a significant achievement. The points system, based on a 100-point scale, has been used as a base at the International Wine Challenge for the past 25 years, to determine whether a medal will fall into the Gold medal (95-100), Silver medal (90- 94), Bronze medal (85-89) or Commended Award (80-84) points category.

“Edge of honey and chalk on the nose with a lemony textural palate. Concentration is evident and finish is lasting. Will benefit from bottle age.”
