Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Complex, waxy, fresh lemon marmalade aromas, good. Sweet but not at all cloying, refreshing acid, good length

Warren Gibson
Complex. Nutty. Overly sweet and out of balance. Same with the dish. Overly sweet and cloying.

Meg Brodtmann
Lemon pith, straw, preserved lemon and fresh quince on the nose. Very sweet on the palate but balanced with the refreshing acidity. Beautiful flavours of apricot nectar, marmalade, quince paste, chamomile and honeysuckle. Yummy with the apple and the buttery pastry.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive medium gold colour. Slightly musty nose with some orange marmalade notes. Very rich palate with citrus and apricot flavours and a persistence of flavour onto the back palate.

Brent Marris
Slight creaminess on the nose and through to the palate. A hint of coconut comes through as does dried fruit. Good acid and sweetness balance on the finish. The apple tart and wine work well together as the wine flavours and acid is lifted nicely.

Ying Tan
Light yellow. Honeyed, biscuit, nutty botrytis, touch of lemon peel. Med-full, high acid, sweet, lemon peel, honeyed, peach and pear. Sweet finish with a touch of dryness on the tail. Apple Tart Tatin dries out the wine a touch
