Compare iS Winescales
One of the greatest benefits of the iS Winescale system is the ability to directly compare the three different scales.
This means that the score allocated by a professional reviewer using the iS10 Winescale can be compared to the score allocated by a user of either the iS6 Winescale or the iS5 Winescale.
Wine lovers can compare their individual scores with those of other wine lovers and also with the scores allocated by wine experts from around the world.
Everyone uses a common “language” for scoring with clearly defined descriptions ensuring there will be no confusion. Of course there is always room for different views but these differences are clearly categorised.
The three iS Winescales can be compared as follows:
|iS10||iS6||iS5||Quality Description||Position in category (iS10 scale only)|
|iS 9.5||●●●●●●||Exceptional||Top end of Exceptional|
|iS 9.0||●●●●●●||Exceptional||Mid range of Exceptional|
