Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Lovely aged Riesling nose. Lemon/lime and subtle aged toasty aromas. Fullish palate, lemony, flavoursome with fresh acidity and with great length

Warren Gibson
Toast, complex, attractive. Positive bottle age. Toasty flavours come through on the palate s well. Rich and concentrated. Quite forward with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Kerosene, buttered toast, baked yellow apple and wet stone on the nose. Some residual sugar on the palate fills out the wine and is balanced by the acid. The flavours reflect the nose but a slight bitterness detracts. The fennel decreases the perception of bitterness and makes the wine more appealing if a little simple and short.

Dr Ken Dobler
Light straw gold colour. Lovely developed toasty aromas on the nose but still with some appealing freshness. Super attractive palate which shows incredible length and complexity of flavours without appearing clumsy.

Brent Marris
Toasty nose and a firm grip on the palate. Grapefruit rind and hints of nuttiness come through on the palate finishing with a lovely balanced acid dew drop character. Well matched with the fennel. Wine is harmonious as the dish makes it more balanced.

Ying Tan
Honeyed, maturing oily, floral, honeyed, grapey nose. Light, dry, lightly toasty, buttery mature grapey elegant fruit on palate. Dry, fine herbal, floral finish. Long. Fennel with Tahini and Sumac: Fairly neutral, well paired without detracting from the quality of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Mid yellow gold with green flashes. Med –hi intensity, honey suckle, lemon blossom and toast Lovely rich citrus and toasty palate hinting at age but still with some lovely freshness, length and complexity. The wine is a significant other in this match.
