BEST WHITES UNDER $20
200 wines submitted
SAUVIGNON BLANC 2012
“Estate-grown, from five year old vines and contract made for Nannup Ridge by maestro Bruce Dukes. Pale quartz-green; the fragrant bouquet foretells a palate with an unusual but attractive array of citrus, gooseberry and white stone fruit flavours, cleansing acidity lengthening the finish and aftertaste.Drink to 2014.”
BEST REDS OVER $20
537 wines submitted
CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2010
“Very strong purple-red; Bruce Dukes’ winemaking skills have produced six gold medals and a trophy in 2011.
Blackcurrant/cassis/bramble fruit flavours are perfectly balanced with French oak and firm, but fine, tannins. The wine has a vibrancy and freshness to its fruit that has increased over the past year.Drink to 2025.”
