'Austrian wines never cease to impress our juries. There is no question about it: Austria makes some of the world's very best wines.' Giles McDonagh

From Oz Clarke to Matt Skinner, Huon Hooke to Stephen Brook, the world's most celebrated wine critics have descended on London to judge thousands of wines at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Wine writers, critics, sommeliers, winemakers, restaurateurs and wine merchants from around the world have gathered to taste the 7,642 wines entered for the awards.

Now in its fourth year, the number of entries has grown year on year: the 2007 figure is a 21% increase on last year.

The 160 judges, including one of the biggest single gatherings of MWs anywhere in the world, comprise some of the biggest names in the international wine world.
