Final call for Fortified Masters 2018 entries

Final entries are now being accepted for The Drinks Business Fortified Masters 2018 ahead of the upcoming deadline.

Now in its fourth year, The Fortified Masters will reward the best fortified wines on offer. The wines will be judged blind by a panel of high regarded judges known for their expertise in the fortified wine sector.

The categories for the competition are as follows: Port (vintage (including single Quinta), LBV, tawny, white, colheita, aged tawny, garrafeira, rose, crusted and reserve); Sherry (fino, manzanilla, amontillado, oloroso, palo cortado, PX, cream and white; and others which include Marsala, Madeira and Vin Doux Naturel.

Producers wishing to take part have until 10 November to enter and submit their wines.

An expert panel of judges composed exclusively of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers will judge the wines, chaired by db editor-in-chief Patrick Schmitt MW. The wines will be tasted blind and the panel will award the best wines with medals from Bronze through to Gold. ‘Master’ is reserved for the exceptional and standout wines of the day.

The results of the tasting and accompanying analysis will be published in the drinks business magazine, online, on social media and also in the Hong Kong edition.

The cost is £140 per entry, and three samples of each submitted wine will be required to insure against damage.
