Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Ripe, beeswax, light honey aromas and ripe lemons. Sweet but not cloying with bright lemony acidity. Lovely long finish. Very good with the food

Warren Gibson
Lifted, pure. Attractive. Rich and concentrated. Nice balance. Excellent with the dish. Long and concentrated

Meg Brodtmann
Lifted florals with honeysuckle, marmalade and toffee. On the palate, the wine is a bit broad and hot with loads of marmalade and honey. Seems to have had an oxidative ageing and finishes a bit short. The wine seems less sweet with unbalanced, sour acid with the dessert.

Dr Ken Dobler
Medium straw gold colour. Restrained nose with some floral notes. Has a lovely textural feel to the palate which pairs well with food.

Brent Marris
Light delicate nose. Hints of floral notes on the palate. Balanced sweetness. Hints of apricot and peach coming through on the finish. Well balanced with the apple tart. Good acidity and sweetness go through the entire palate when tasted together.

Ying Tan
Light yellow. Floral, grassy, herbal sweet nose. Light, sweet, honeyed, lightly biscuit (touch of botrytis?). Sweet biscuit apple and herb intensity with floral notes. Med- long finish. Apple Tart Tatin accentuates sourness and bitterness
