Judges' Comments
Kym Milne
Complex, struck match notes. Stone fruit and hint of green apple. Quite full palate with some green apple acidity, quite flinty and mineral on the finish. Refreshing foil with the food

Stuart Halliday
Restrained elegant style, lemon/lime, juicy acid, well balanced, good integration. Beautiful finish, elegance and restraint personified

Oliver Masters
Pale youthful gold colour, dark intense flint, brioche and warm fruit aromas, very fine pure sweet citrus fruit on palate. Worked well with smoked trout dish

Natasha Hughes
Toasty nose with smoky notes. Modern style with fairly linear mid-palate and bright acidity. Rich citrus and pineapple fruit. Good finish. Complex

Corey Ryan
Pale straw hues, lifted melon peach and corn kernel aromas. Chewy textural robust wine, fleshy leesy complex creamy finish. Well made. The corn-kernel characters of the wine are enhanced with the smoky trout flavours, the risotto and sunflower seeds complement the palate texture of the wine.

Matthew Deller
Pale gold appearance. Restrained, citrus, flinty, subtle baking spice oak. Good density, early harvest tart acidity and greenish phenolics. Medium length, marzipan finish. Food accentuates the alcohol.
