Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly dull and lacking some freshness. Yeasty. Palate confirms this. Moderate length.

Meg Brodtmann
Classic aromas of asparagus and gooseberry with some flint. Lovely acid balanced by a touch of residual sugar. Great flavours of gooseberry and asparagus. Just a little hard on the finish. Well matched with cauliflower.

Dr Ken Dobler
Bright straw green colour. Attractive guava and tropical fruit aromas. Restrained savoury palate with a cleansing mouthfeel. That lovely clean finish is an excellent foil to food.

Brent Marris
Light nose, very elegant. Lacks intensity would expect in a young Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh bright just lacking intensity. Slight citrus character coming through on finish. Wine stays elegant with the cauliflower dish.

Ying Tan
Fresh green mango, herbal nose nicely pointed up by balancing acidity, finishing creamy. Round easy style of Sauvignon Blanc. Cauliflower rounds out the wine. Points up spice of dukkah.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw, glossy. Fruity esters, acacia notes, slightly sweaty. Zesty sherbet like acid, fresh and bright. Good acid length. This is a good match and actually brings out flavour in wine.
