“Held at the National Orange Show Events Center in Southern California, this annual competition has been setting standards for judging of fine wines since 1985. The Competition is a two-day event held in April where we collect thirty wine professional who conduct a blind evaluation of about two thousand wines. Results are e-mailed to participating wineries shortly after the judging concludes and result books are then printed and distributed.”
Wine judges from wine regions around the country evaluated more than 1,200 wines at the 2013 Pacific Rim Wine Competition at the The National Orange Show in San Bernardino, one of the first major international wine competitions of the year.
This Texas Albariño from McPherson had a balance of crisp fruit aromas and flavors. Exotic scents of peach, mango, pear and apple are married with the rich and velvety texture, judges said.
