NSW paved with gold

By Thursday 12 October 2023October 14th, 2023No Comments

The medal winning wines of the 2023 ICC Sydney NSW Wine Awards have been revealed ahead of the trophy presentation.

A total of 480 medals were awarded and 65 of those received a gold.

Chair of judging Nick Spencer said, “I was thrilled to chair my third NSW Wine Awards and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, the results were outstanding.

“The quality of wines this year were extraordinary and a real testament to the producers, particularly when considering how challenging the last two vintages have been.

“There were of course some stand-out classes including Semillon, Shiraz and, encouragingly, the Sparkling wine class has improved significantly with 20 medals awarded – up from 12 the previous year.

“Other classes that shone were the Alternative White and Red classes which seem to improve year in year out.

“The top Chardonnays this year also back my belief that NSW produces some of the best Chardonnay in the world.”

The trophy presentation lunch will be held on 10 November.
