Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Ripe, peachy, some tropical notes, quite rich and full palate with some sweet oak and cashew notes, ripe fruits and warm finish.

Warren Gibson
Initially a slightly dull, ripe nose, lacking some freshness. Second look better. Rich and full palate. Grapefruit. Complex, slightly fatter wine with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Showing some development with honey, sesame crackers and grapefruit. Oak is more evident on the palate with a lovely crisp, nutty finish. Beautifully structured. Lovely wine. Sadly, not a great pairing the wine seemed to broaden out.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive straw green colour. Refined aromas of cut stone fruit. The palate is elegant and long with attractive primary fruit. Food accentuates the lovely primary fruit notes.

Brent Marris
Hints of tropical fruit on the nose with lingering creaminess on the palate. Great oak integration, fruit balance and length of flavour on the palate. Layers of flavour make this wine very appealing. A lovely food wine match with the wine becoming quite seamless. Lovely length and acid balance on the finish.

Ying Tan
Creamy oaky apple nose. Med-full, dry, med-high acid backbone. Simple oaky apple fruit on palate. Oak dominated. A touch dilute. Med long. Snapper ameliorates oak influence. Improves other flavour elements and deepens the wine
