Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Flinty, slightly burnt rubber nose, some fruit underneath. Complex palate but rubbery edge a touch pronounced on aftertaste

Stuart Halliday
Toasted nuts, buttered toast on the nose, grilled grapefruit, oak is well integrated and fine. Powerful mid palate, finish is long and lean. Lovely food wine

Oliver Masters
Youthful gold colour, marzipan, orange zest and brioche aromas, very fine pretty citrus acid sweet palate. Good match and worked well with smoked trout dish.

Natasha Hughes
Vanilla oak and lime cordial. A slightly hard edge to the acidity, which seems out of balance.

Corey Ryan
Pale straw and amber hues, lifted dusty notes flinty reductive aromas. A big rich fleshy mid palate, chewy long rounded good intensity and richness. The food dish doesn’t promote the wine, the leesy undertones are buried into the risotto flavours.

Matthew Deller
Medium gold. Classical, flinty, citrus, white flower, baking spice oak. Taut, dense and refined with crisp acidity, good length and a dry, austere finish. Food accentuates the oak and alcohol.
