Judges comments from the 2018 Sydney International Wine Competition

Mike de Garis, Second Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“Lemon citrus, slight floral lift. Lemon spice, hard acid overrides RS, zingy finish. Food : makes the wine more moreish, adds to the flavour length.”

Martin Moran, Second Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“A lighter type of sweet wine with aromas of ripe apple, honey and lemon and interestingly the dish seems to add richness to the wine.”

Martin Williams, Fourth Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“Bright pale straw colour. Fine lemon-lime blossom and zest aromas, very clean and fresh. Light and lively palate; balanced sweetness and clean, mouth-watering acidity. Clean, slightly firm finish with appreciable alcohol warmth. With food: good combination, though alcohol is still evident. ”

Brent Marris, Thirteenth Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“Mid straw in colour, this wine shows lovely floral aromas with a lovely sweet cherry blossom palate. Great acidity and fruit balance ensure this wine does not finish too sweet. Balanced concentrated and fruit driven. A Great match as the dessert does not come across too sweet. ”

Ying Hsien Tan, Second Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“Light yellow. Zesty, lime tinged, sweet grapey, floral, lightly biscuit nose. Light, fresh lime-tinged sweet apple and honey mid-palate.Sweet fresh finish.”

Dr Ken Dobler, Eleventh Term Panellist 2019 Competition:

“Excellent bright straw colour. The nose is effusive with with ripe apricot and stone fruit. The palate is more restrained and is very long and attractive. The strong primary fruit notes in the wine pair well with dessert”
