Unsworth Earns High Praise in the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards
Decanter World Wine Awards—the world's largest and most influential wine competition—offers a definitive guide to the dynamic world of wine.
Each year’s results offer surprises and revelations, highlighting growth in quality and consistency—or lack thereof. With 18,244 wines judged from 54 countries, this 19th edition of the competition set an an all-time record for wines tasted.
Unsworth was honoured with the following two medals:
- Our 2019 Pinot Noir earned 91 points and a Silver Medal. Not only is it the highest score ever for a Vancouver Island wine, it’s one of a select few Canadian Pinot Noirs to get 90+ points.
- Our 2019 Chardonnay earned 88 points and a Bronze Medal. Given it was Unsworth’s first crack at Chardonnay, we’re extraordinarily proud of this recognition as well. (Note: the 2019 vintage is now sold out, however the 2020 Chardonnay is available and getting enthusiastic nods of approval as our Winemaker, Dan Wright, continues to find his groove with this most noble grape.)
