Wines produced by Georgian companies collected some of the major awards at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards, with the prestigious international competition concluding in May, 2017.
Promoted as the world’s “largest and most influential wine competition”, the 2017 edition of the awards featured over 17,000 wines from across the world.
The Bronze Award went to Georgian Wines’ Saperavi of 2015 year, scoring 89 points out of 100 from the jury.
Submissions for the 14th edition of Decanter Awards were assessed by over 200 wine experts in London, the United Kingdom. Their ranks included 65 Masters of Wine and 20 Master Sommeliers.
The judges qualified the wines based on their regional and style-based specialisation, tasting the products while knowing the region, style and price bracket of the given wines but being unaware of the producer or the brand name.
Comparing notes between each other, the juries finally reached a consensus on awards for the featured wines.
