Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly closed and grubby nose. Tropical fruits come through. Palate lacks freshness and definition.

Meg Brodtmann
Restrained nose with lemon pith, grapefruit and some orange zest. Quite interesting. The palate is, however, classic with asparagus and passionfruit. Solid wine. Appears more floral with the cauliflower.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive nose with aromas of fresh herb and perfumed talc. Excellently weighted palate with a pleasing balance of primary fruit and savoury minerality.

Brent Marris
Hints of orange blossom on the nose followed by ripe more tropical notes on the palate. Good acid balance showing the wines structure and lovely texture on the finish. cauliflower works well as wine becomes creamier with great acid balance.

Ying Tan
Grassy herbal floral nose. Light, dry, fresh acidity backing green melon, apple, lightly floral persistent mid-palate. Balanced. Dry spicy, herbal finish. Very long. Cauliflower more than a match, integrating nicely and emphasizing all the positive of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Pale yellow straw. Moderately intense lemon balm and grassy herbal notes. Bright acid and citrusy, green notes on the palate Medium flavour length. This is another quite powerful wine and may be little dominant for this particular dish.
