    Wines From Spain Awards 2014

    The annual Wines of Spain tasting is one of the biggest wine events in London.
    I have been attending for many years and while the 'crisis' has seen a reduction in the number of wineries attending it is still an important trade show.
    Recently I attended a tasting to reveal the award winners.
    Like all awards care needs to be taken about how representative they are.
    The tasters in this case are highly regarded and they selected 102 wines for special mention out of 700 tasted.
    In each class there was an award winner.
    Here are those winners.

    I wasn't convinced by all these winners, but that's inevitable, how boring if we all felt the same.
    I thought in the white category that the Pazo de Señorans Selección de Añada 2007 deserved more recognition.
    And in the Reds LRA's Torre de Oña Reserva 2009 and Guelbenzu Lombana 2005 were very impressive.

    There's a full list of all 102 winners here
