Judges' Comments

Wilfred Wong
A straw green colour. Pleasing dried orange with citrus rind aroma. Medium bodied. Firm on the palate yet delicate and fine. A little bit milky on the palate. Very good with the food.

Adrian Atkinson
Medium golden tinge to the colour. The palate is rich clean, toasty and creamy. Lovely complexity and character with length. Lovely with the food.

Xenia Irwin MW
A rich ripe autolytic brioche nose. Full, firm and solid, Attractive weight and concentration counterbalanced with tight fine acid. Very good length. Well matched with the food and holds up well.

Marian Jansen
A fragrant nose with red apple fruit on the palate. Candied citrus on a persistence finish. Nice acidity. The same with food. Very food friendly.

Brent Marris
A toasty nose. Clean and vibrant. Toastiness on the palate. It had great length. A slight broadness. Good acid finish. The swordfish was a good match with this sparkling. It balanced it out well.

Kym Milne MW
A bright riper style. Some nuttiness, a hint of toast and creamy aromas. Quite a full flavoured style with a touch of oak character. Ripe, creamy, toasty and rich; but with good acidity.

Warren Gibson
A slightly dirty grubby nose with an apple cider note. The palate confirms the nose. Some funky wild yeast like notes. Good acidity and length of flavour. The wine dominates the dish at first, with the swordfish kicking in at the finish.

Tom Hogan
Appearance pale straw. The nose certainly showing a lot of lees derived aromatics. The palate is simple and a touch flabby.
