This was one of the most exciting categories to judge. Other Whites and Blends is an uninspiring name but there are simply so many great wines to drink here. Indeed, of all the categories, this was the one that provoked the most discussion, off the back of the fact that the wines themselves had us all sitting up straighter. Mount Mary can count itself incredibly unlucky not to have come out on top here, so close was the scoring, but the John Kosovich Chenin is a beautiful and personality-laden wine, as are many of the wines here.
