Nothing to say about the awards, because I suppose you have awarded ONLY wines distributed in the UK.
I particularly love some of them: Best Red Over £10: Bodega Mustiguillo Finca Terrerazo 2004;
Best Unfortified Sweet Wine: Julian Chivite Colección 125 Vendimia Tardia 2005; Best Fortified Sweet Wine: González Byass Matusalem Muy Viejo.

But I guess that, if these are the available in the UK awarded wines, there are in Spain a lot of wineries which have to seriously improve their incoming paths to the UK.
A question: In the English wine-vocabulary, "sherry" (so, "jerez") and manzanilla (so, "manzanilla"), describe the same wine?
All the best,
Joan

Hi Joan
Sherry covers any style of fortified wine that comes from around Jerez. They are not called 'Jerez' though. A Manzanilla is just one style of Sherry; as is Fino etc
