    The variation in scores and preferences of individual judges is rather amazing. I’m a big fan of the Constantia Glen Five and therefore far from objective, but to illustrate my point:

    – It received the trophy and a score of 96 from a panel at this competition.
    – It also received platinum and a score of 97 at the equally prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards.
    – A credible 93 points from Tim Atkin
    – 88 points from winemag

    I don’t know which score should hold more sway than another, but ultimately I guess it’s in eye/taste of the beholder.
