For as long as anyone can remember we have been using the 60 point system to judge wines. This year saw a change, and this was at the recommendation of Chief Judge Jen Pfeiffer. There was a little bit of overhead in making this change, especially in the backend of the website where this data was entered on the day, and on the results page. But we did it and so I guess you can teach old dogs new tricks. From now on wines will be award medals based on this system. It didn’t have any affect on those wines judged, they would still be gold, silver or bronze, just the point awarded were different. Gold is 95 to 100 points. Silver 90 to 94 points and bronze 85 to 89 points. We again congratulate all entrants for the high standard of wines entered. Seems everyone was putting their best foot forward.
