The Fortified Masters is a competition created and run by the drinks business, and is an extension of its successful Masters series for grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, as well as regions from Champagne to Chianti.
The competition is exclusively for fortified wines, and the entries were judged by highly experienced tasters, using Schott Zwiesel Cru Classic glasses supplied by Wine Sorted.
The top fortified wines were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze medals according to their result, and those entries that stood out as being outstanding received the ultimate accolade – the title of Fortified Master.
The wines were tasted over the course of a single day at Hardy’s Brasserie and Wine Bar in London.
This report only features the medal winners.
