Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen

For the eleventh consecutive year, WineDirect are delighted to curate the Official Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen. This year we have been able to include a record five Trophy winners and eight Top Gold winners. 2019's Wine Show Dozens showcase superb wines, every wine included has at a minimum scored a Gold Medal, putting them in the top 6% of all wines judged.

2019 saw over 2,600 entries at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show. Every wine being judged is tasted blind, that is, none of the judges know what wines they are tasting other than its variety and vintage. In total 5 judges look at each wine in a class, compare notes, argue and work out which deserve a Gold (less than 1 in 14 score Gold), Silver or Bronze medal, and indeed, nothing at all (about two thirds of all entries score nil, nix, nada). Such is the standard of competition that a lot of very good wines do not even score Bronze.

Where the judges can’t agree on a medal, and if the wine is under consideration for a Gold, they are recalled and tasted at greater length, again blind, by the same judges before being considered for a Gold Medal or consigned to Silver or Bronze. At this point, the Deputy and Chair of Judges look at the finalists and give the nod, or otherwise, to those selections.
