29.5.19 Decanter World Wine Awards Results 2019

One of the major international wine competitions, this 16th edition of DWWA involved 280 expert tasters from 30 countries including 70 Masters of Wine and 23 Master Sommeliers. They examined 17,000 wines blind over two weeks awarding 50 Best in Show, 148 Platinum, 480 Gold, 4,164 Silver and 7,368 Bronze medals. A quick calculation reveals that over 70% of the wines entered scored a medal of some sort. Make of that what you will. Anyway the following are the results for Sherry, and are more or less the usual suspects. I have not included Silver and Bronze as there are just too many wines to plough through. (Silver medals score 90-94 and Bronze 86-89).
