In its 23rd year The Sydney International Wine Competition is a little different to other wine competitions as it's the only major international wine competition to judge wine where it is most often enjoyed - with food. Trophy winners are selected from the Top 100 wines - representing an elite 5% of entries.
Approximately 2,000 wines entered the 2005 competition, representing 478 brands from thirteen countries - Australia, Argentina, Austria, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, USA. An international panel of thirteen judges from five countries, under the Chairmanship of Chief Judge Mr Kym Milne MW, judged all entries.
