Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Attractive ripe fruits. Pungent. Excellent palate. Rich and long with fresh lingering acidity. Excellent synergy with the dish. This amplified the freshness of the wine.

Meg Brodtmann
This wine has more savoury elements fresh straw with a wet stone aroma. Very delicate on the palate with some asparagus and wet stone. The acid is a little unbalanced with the wine lacking sufficient fruit to support the acid. Interestingly, the acid works well with the cauliflower.

Dr Ken Dobler
Restrained mineral aromas on the nose. Palate is more generous with hints of tropical fruit as well as mineral notes. Finishes dry and long.

Brent Marris
Delicate herbal notes on nose and palate. Good acid balance with slight apricot and peach notes coming through. Wine finishes with slight leafy notes and lovely balanced acid. cauliflower works well as the wine is more structured and alive.

Ying Tan
Light creamy green herbal nose. Light dry, spicy, high acid, apple, green melon. Relatively straightforward. Dry simple finish. Cauliflower emphasizes freshness of green apple.

Sue Bastian
Pale lemon yellow straw. Moderately intense dried herb nose Soft palate mouthfeel, with little fruit weight. Wine works well with this dish.
