Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Restrained nose, complex, nutty. Some sweet oak. Slightly grippy, dry finish.

Warren Gibson
Complex and attractive. Grapefruit and citrus notes apparent. Very rich and complex wine. Excellent match with the fish. Long and lingering flavours.

Meg Brodtmann
Peach, nectarine and apricot aromas with a hint of oak. A real stone fruit bomb on the palate with lots of buttery oak and a hint of caramel. A much richer style which is balanced and layered. A fairly neutral pairing.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive light straw green colour. Interesting nose with some struck match characters complexed with melon and fig aromas. Deliciously complex palate with lovely primary fruit and lees character flavours. There is elegance and length that sits well with food.

Brent Marris
Burnt match, gunpowder notes on the nose and palate. Slight nutty notes on the palate. Slight burnt notes on the finish. Quite funky. Wine is better with the fish dish as is toned down. Acidity pops through and is less funky.

Ying Tan
Spicy floral oaky nose. Med-bodied, dry, light apple, simple. Oaky creamy finish. Snapper is neutral with the wine
