Fourteen out of Tokaj's twenty-four awards at this year's International Wine Challenge have gone to dry Tokaji wines, which still rarely happens at any international wine competition, despite the majority of the region's quality production having long been dry wine. All three Gold medals were awarded to sweet wines, though, including one to Juliet Victor's 2016 Szamorodni and one to Royal Tokaji's Late Harvest 2017, while Patricius stole the show again by winning the Tokaji Sweet Trophy, this time, for their 6 puttonyos Aszú wine of 2013.
