15,929 wines from all over the world were tasted by 240 of the world’s best palates including 85 Masters of Wine (MW) and 23 Master Sommeliers. Spain fared very well, with Sarah Jane Evans MW saying “Spain is the most exciting thing happening in European wine right now”. Couldn't agree more! The results for Sherry are as follows:

I have excluded Bronze medals and Commendations for brevity. As usual it is interesting to see what won what. I was surprised, forjust one example, that a supermarket Fino won the same silver medal as an Almacenista Oloroso and various VORS wines. But hey, that's wine competitions for you!
