Indian wine judges with discerning palates

goldwinners.jpgAt the recently held Sommelier India Wine Competition, over 400 wines were entered of which only 18 received Gold medals. This constituted a mere 4.3% of the wines tasted. However, the number of wines receiving some recognition (many got commended) was 55% of the total. Does this mean too many medals were awarded? Quite the opposite. At the Decanter World Wine Awards this year 67% of the wines received recognition and at the Japan Wine Challenge nearly 70%, with the percentage of award winning wines going up every year. This shows that wine is being better made now and therefore more wines earn recognition with each passing year.
