Thanks guys.
My personal opinion of Yo's Strawberry Pizzaz, is that it's not old enough yet. As such it has the potential to get a silver at least as it ages.
One note from the judge: "it has a 'sickly' flavour that is telltale of using over-ripe end of season strawberries"
He recommends using the 'not so cheap' jam-making strawberries.

Congrats! That's pretty awesome!

... now I wonder about my own strawberry wines and their slight phenolics... but even the professionals' strawberry wine tasted like that to me, I thought it was just a thing strawberries did when they fermented...
