Food Recipes from the Sydney International Wine Competition's Judging Tables
Wine finalists are judged in Wine Style Categories alongside food of similar palate weight.
These Wine/Food combinations will offer some suggestions for successful wine and food pairings.
In this respect, the Sydney International Wine Competition is unlike any of the other majors.
Our Award winners are distinguished by this difference. After all, these wines will mostly be expected to
perform at the dining table, to complement appropriate food. Wines that succeed when judged beside appropriate
food tend to be more harmonious, better balanced wines. Wines that MAY come into balance ten years hence often
look quite ugly when offered beside food right now. Here are the recipes for the dishes beside which the
Competition's 'Style Category' Finalists have been judged.
