A full set of results, including the Silver and Bronze medals and a transcript of the judges’ feedback session, is available on

* Chartered accountants PKF monitored the judging procedures at the 2012 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show and audited the competition results. Throughout the judging the identity of the wines was withheld from all the tasters, including the Show Chairman.  No one judge was in a position to impose a result upon a majority of the panellists and declarations of interest have been received from all the judges as well as the associate judges.
