2019 Best Trophy Winners
Hatten Wines, Hatten Wines Sparkling Brut Tunjung, NV
A beautiful tropical perfume of lychee, mango and peach. The palate has good concentration and is fresh and well balanced. A delicious wine that is unique and refreshing.
Grande Polaire, Grande Polaire Yamanashi Koshu Barrel Fermentation, 2017
Some complexities beyond a fruit spectrum of citrus peel and nectarines, integrated lees and subtle oak. The palate is textural, with very balanced fruit weight and oak. Finish is long and well handled.
Château Mercian, Château Mercian Hosaka Muscat Bailey A 2014
Moderate colour density, clean and bright hue. Very charming nose with sweet-sour plums and integrated toasty oak. The palate is savoury, well structured, with a good backbone of acidity bringing freshness and length. A delightful wine.
Liaoning Sanhe Winery, Ice Wine Golden Vessel, 2015
Strong noble rot characters, with honey, dried apricot and fig aromas. The palate is lovely and sweet with the acid providing great balance. A juicy and clean finish.
