The Most Exciting Wines of 2016 Decanter staff, contributors and the regional chairs of the Decanter World Wine Awards were asked to name the five wines under the 55-GBP mark that had most satisfied them during the previous 12 months. The result was an amazing selection of 195 wines from diverse origins and representing an abundance of styles. Not only did these recommended wines hail from the classic regions, but from such countries as Cyprus, Canada, Israel and Japan.
Armed with only two pieces of information, the grape type and the year of harvest, the expert trio of Evans, Guibert and Howard conducted a blind tasting.
Focusing on that magical "wow factor," the three experts selected 50 bottles of the ultimate still wine, and a further 25 bottles of sparkling, off dry (slightly sweet), sweet and fortified wine.
