Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted and pure. Vibrant and fresh style with firm acidity. Excellent persistence. Good match with the cauliflower

Meg Brodtmann
Very aromatic nose with white florals, green apple, grapefruit and gooseberry. The palate is of riper fruit with passionfruit, some marmalade and a rich palate weight. Lovely match with the cauliflower supporting the rich palate.

Dr Ken Dobler
Exceptional pale straw green colour. Intensely mineral quality to the aromas with flint and wet stone. The palate continues with that minerality which is an excellent foil to food.

Brent Marris
Fresh vibrant nose followed by a lovely crunchy fruit driven palate. Both fresh and refreshing. Clean bright and fresh. Classic of new world Sauvignon Blanc. A great match with the cauliflower as the wine stays fresh and bright.

Ying Tan
Spicy, green grassy gooseberry nose. Med-full, dry, green capsicum, grassy mid-palate. Fairly straightforward. Dry finish. Long. Cauliflower is neutral with the wine.

Sue Bastian
Bright pale yellow straw. Delicate tropical fruits and citrus pith. Quite intense Little short length. The wine is quite intense so overpowers this dish a little and could stand up to some more substantially flavoured food.
