Descriptions of Competition's Awards

"PEOPLE'S PALATES ARE DIFFERENT. EACH PERSON'S PALATE IS UNIQUE, AS UNIQUE AS THEIR FINGERPRINT.
It is not surprising then, when it comes to wine, that people have different preferences. Once a wine has reached the Finals of this Competition, there is no such thing as one single, all embracing opinion about any of these finalists. We want you to make up your own mind about which wines give you pleasure.  And that is why we publish several judges' opinions on every Award winner. We aim to strengthen your confidence in making up your own mind about which wines are best for you.

FOREWORD
The Sydney International Wine Competition's primary objective is to help diners choose pleasing wines to complement the dishes of their dining table. The Competition Panel's collective recommendations are communicated mainly through the Competition's popular www.top100wines.com website and via the Competition's Award bottle medallions which bear the Competition's official logo and other trademarks. The usefulness of the service the Competition offers is evidenced by the number of visitors the Competition's website receives and the Award winning entrants' demand for the Competition's official bottle medallions.
