New Wave Spanish Wine Awards 2007: The winners

29 June, 2007

Now in its third year, the annual New Wave Spanish Wine Awards 2007 features 109 wines covering a wide spectrum of styles.

On June 7 and 8, a team of 16 judges led by Tim Atkin MW tasted more than 700 wines to select a line-up of the best Spanish wines available in the UK off-trade.

By the end of the two days of scrutiny 109 wines had been selected covering all Spain's key wine styles: cavas, whites, rosados, reds, sherries and sweet wines. A healthy number of wines were also awarded a trophy and, for the first time in this event, a rosado trophy was awarded to Storks' Tower (wine 22).

The wines make their debut here and they will be showcased throughout the year by Wines From Spain.

Full details on the wines and their suppliers will be published in OLN's New Wave Spanish Wine Awards supplement on Friday, Sept 7, and online.

Donald Trump: the US has much to learn from history

The reasons Donald Trump should not be left in charge of a shopping trolley, let alone the keys to the White House, are plentiful and well-documented – from his use of the word “bigly” and lamentable business legacy to his dubious post-modern feminist principles, quite astonishing lack of political acumen and, most worrying of all, his bewildering hair.
