Freshness and complexity won the day. “Wood smoke and spiced nose, more brambly fruit on the palate with great length”, said Michael Fiducia of Drake's Restaurant, with team leader Angela Reddin recommending lamb to match its “hedgerow fruits and garrigue herb scents”, and Gustavo Medina of Tate Britain noting: “Green fruit with fresh herbs on the nose, and red and black forest fruits on the palate”.

With its well-poised balance between richness and acids, fruit and minerality, Vistamar struck Gold with its modern Chardonnay. “There's a flinty, smoky finish on the palate, along with grassy herbal notes”, said Bubbledogs' Sandia Chang. “Noticeable residual sugar, but good flavour”, began Orrery's Gaetano Giangaspero, who also noted its "aromatic and rich, exotic, passion fruit style”.
