Published:  18 June, 2010

This year's English & Welsh Wine of the Year Competition results have been announced with a record number of awards.

Medals were awarded across the style categories by a judging panel of five Masters of Wine, chaired by Susan McCraith MW.

McCraith said the results reveal the quality of the 2009 vintage, shown particularly in the dry white and still rosé categories, the sparkling wine impressed judges with its consistent quality.

The category that stood out most for the judges was the still rosé section, where six gold medals were awarded (none were gained in the 2009 competition).

"As a panel we were all very impressed with the quality of this year's entries. We were delighted to award a record number of gold medals across all the categories," added McCraith.
