Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Some botrytis, honeyed aromas. Sweet, marmalade and orange rind flavours, nice acid balance and good length

Warren Gibson
Complex. Nutty. Lots of colour. Very sweet. Lacks balance. Bitter with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Interestingly complex nose of marmalade, fresh straw, creamed honey, apricot nectar and chamomile. The palate doesn’t disappoint with all those flavours plus toffee, caramel, balanced sugar and acid and a hint of vanilla oak. Seems a little simpler with the dessert but still a very good wine.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive light gold colour. The nose shows interesting almond and apricot jam aromas. Delicious palate with intense apricot flavours complexed with some more savoury almond meal notes.

Brent Marris
Rich ripe toasty nutty notes on the nose and palate. Hints of cut straw and dried fruit. Slight tropical fruit coming through but finishing with a nice dried fig character. When tasted with the apple tart the wine comes across with more depth so works well.

Ying Tan
Light gold. Honeyed biscuit, lightly toffee, dried apricots on the nose. Full, sweet, honeyed, balancing fresh acidity, biscuity, nutty light orange peel botrytis. Sweet apricot, honeyed, biscuit finish. Long. Apple Tart Tatin neutral
