Decanter World Wine Awards 2021: Ukrainian wines are highly appreciated!

12.07.2021, b2b Author: Iryna Chernova

The Ukrainian wines received awards at the prestigious competition Decanter World Wine Awards 2021.

The 18th and one of the most influential international wine competitions was held in London. This time there were a lot of innovations at the Decanter World Wine Awards: the competition samples were judged by 170 authoritative wine judges, including 44 Masters of Wine, 11 Master Sommeliers, as well as wine experts from around the world. The number of wines presented also broke records of previous years: the jury evaluated 18,093 samples!

And this year, for the first time, so many Ukrainian manufacturers took part in the competition – and, what is especially pleasant, they were accepted triumphantly, having received many awards, including “gold”. But first things first. 🙂

The first pleasant surprise is two bronze medals of the young Odessa winery Odesos Winery. Note that the company was founded in 2019 – and already such an achievement at a prestigious competition in London! Apparently, the philosophy of Odesos Winery winemakers “Quality is more important than volume” is bearing fruit. Keep it up! 🙂

The company Artwinery is also celebrating the victory, two sparkling wines of which won bronze medals in the competition.

Wine at Decanter Awards

Another debutant of the Decanter World Wine Awards is Beykush Winery. The jury awarded medals to 9 samples of this winery: 5 wines received silver, and 4 wines brought the producer bronze. Well, after the recognition of domestic experts and the awards received at Ukrainian professional competitions, as well as the high assessment given to Beykush wines by one of the most respected wine critics in the world, Jancis Robinson, during the tasting of Ukrainian wines organized by Drinks+, the medals at such a prestigious competition seem quite logical and well-deserved. We wish Beykush Winery to conquer new international wine peaks! 🙂

Decanter World Wine Awards 2021

The main Ukrainian triumphant of the Decanter World Wine Awards was the SHABO company, whose wines won 16 (!) Awards, including two gold medals – for Grande Reserve Chardonnay 2015 and Grande Reserve Cabernet 2017! The professional expert jury of the competition evaluated these two samples at a record 95 points. Separately, we note that wines from a special collection of Iukuridze Family Wine, were also awarded. The premiere of the collection in Ukraine was announced for the fall by SHABO CEO Giorgi Iukuridze. We are looking forward to and wish the entire team of the leading Ukrainian wine-making company to conquer new international heights! 🙂

We indicate that several Crimean enterprises also contributed to the collection of awards of the Ukrainian winemaking “team”: the jury of the competition noted the wines of “Massandra” and “Zolota Balka”.

This year, our wine-making partner countries, Moldova and Georgia, took part in the Decanter World Wine Awards. Moldovan winemakers won three gold medals: the jury noted the wines of the Purcari, Radacini and Kazayak wineries. Georgia brought one “gold” which was received by the Binekhi Winery from Kakheti.

Drinks+ once again congratulates all Ukrainian producers who have been highly evaluated by the expert jury of the prestigious competition and believes that ours is just beginning its triumphant march to the international wine arena.
