Decanter World Wine Award (DWWA) is the largest and most influential wine competition in the world, which has been held annually in London since 2004.

This year, 275 experts from different countries, including Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, tasted 16,903 samples of wines. Wines were evaluated according to a 100-point scale.

All the wines at DWWA are blind tasted against their peers and by experts in a particular region or style. Gold medal winners then go on to compete for Platinum medals. Wines securing a Platinum medal in this round are then judged against their peers globally at a special tasting to decide the Platinum Best in Show medals.
