[ 45 Awards & 10 Gold Medals ]

Bodegas Emilio Lustau of Jerez – producer of fine delicious Sherry – has once again made history at the 2015 International Wine Challenge (in London, England). Having received 45 awards and 10 Gold Medals for its range of amazing Sherries, Lustau was the most awarded European winery in 2015 at this benchmark competition. Of particular note was the performance of Lustau’s VORS (Very Old & Rare Sherry) range of products, with Lustau Amontillado VORS & Palo Cortado VORS both winning Gold Medals for the 4th consecutive year and Lustau Oloroso VORS recognized as the Best Oloroso Wine of the competition. Once again, Lustau VORS Sherries of the main aged styles have been held up as the platinum standard for aged-dated Sherries – more than 30 years old.

The International Wine Challenge is the most influential wine awards competition in the world. Now in its 32nd year, the IWC is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition – which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
