Fortified Masters medal winners released

As for the golds, these also reflected the quality available among the aged tawnies, Madeiras and Sherries, while the medal tally further highlighted the value in the single quinta vintage Port category, with Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos 2001 earning a gold, alongside the just released 2011 classic vintage from Sandeman.

The tasting also drew the tasters’ attention to the quality possibilities in Manzanilla, with Hidalgo’s aged single vineyard example called Pasada Pastrana gaining a gold too.

Then, among the high scorers such as Burmester’s 40 year-old Tawny was the unctuous and deliciously concentrated Penfolds Great Grandfather Rare Tawny – a fortified wine first released by the famous Australian producer in 1994 to celebrate Penfolds’ 150th anniversary.

But that wasn’t the only Aussie to get a gold – Rutherglen’s Morris Old Premium Rare Liqueur Muscat also managed to score extremely highly for its immensely sweet, complex wine, which has spent well over 20 years in cask.
