Record Portugal entries at Decanter World Wine Awards
With around 900 entries this year, we have two Portuguese panels of judges for all five days at Decanter World Wine Awards. A first.
Quantity is one thing. What of quality? Compared with when I started judging for Decanter a decade or so ago, the overall quality is up. I’m seeing cleaner, brighter wines.
We are finding plenty of wines to recommend for their regional and varietal typicity. And Gold dust has been sprinkled!
I am sure there will be more!
More top judges too. I’m delighted The Yeatman’s Beatriz Machado, The Wine Society’s Jo Locke MW and Taberna do Mercado’s Ieva Markaityte are also on team Portugal.
