Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Complex, botrytised Semillon characters of beeswax and honey with some sweet oak. Long finish

Warren Gibson
Lifted. Fresh. Rich and concentrated. Very sweet with the dish. Lacks some definition to drive through.

Meg Brodtmann
Apricot nectar, quince, marmalade and lemon pith are all evident on the nose. The palate is rich with apricot, honey, lemon meringue pie and quince paste flavours. Balanced and long on the finish. Lovely pairing with the apple tart – all elements seemed to work well.

Dr Ken Dobler
Bright gold colour. Complex nose with nutty elements and mandarin aromas. Palate is sweet and generous and dominated by fresh citrus flavours which persist to the back palate.

Brent Marris
Slight toastyness on nose and creaminess on palate. Dried figs and apricot come through as does richness of fruit and balanced acid. A great match with the apple tart. Both work in harmony together.

Ying Tan
Light gold. Honeyed biscuit caramelised lightly toffee apple and flowers on nose. Full, sweet, very high acid, fairly simple caramelised baked toffee fruit. Sweet biscuit finish. Apple Tart Tatin dries out the wine
