Trade weekly OLN has published the results of its New Wave Spanish Wine Awards 2005. A 12 strong tasting panel took two days examining 700 wines from across Spain. I won't list all the Top 106 (they found it impossible to couldn't knock out a final six to make a round 100) but the Trophy Winners are easier to compile. Sadly no specific retailers were listed but the recommended retail price is included.
