Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Deepish colour. Toasty, nutty, aromas with slight rubbery edge. Rich palate, toasty, nutty, creamy with oak flavours quite pronounced on the finish

Stuart Halliday
Light gold colour, toasty oak on the nose, with some white peach, juicy acid, a more elegant restrained wine, suitable for dishes like softly grilled white fleshed fish

Oliver Masters
Yellow gold colour intense burnt matchstick aromatics, tight fine pure elegant palate, style not so suited to smoked trout

Natasha Hughes
Ripe stone fruit, creamy texture. Bold oak. Fairly simple. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Corey Ryan
Pale straw amber colour, lifted reductive notes. A chunky style chewy textural nice intensity however lacks palate precision, finishes heavy and blowsy.

Matthew Deller
Medium gold. Restrained, citrus, banana, pineapple, nougat, matchstick, subtle baking spice oak. Taut, moderate concentration, tart acidity and grippy, green, phenolics. Alcohol warmth on finish, medium length. Food accentuates the tautness and refinement of this wine.
