Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
A very different style to many others. Ripe, tropical fruit with barrel ferment characters. Funky, full on style. Lacking a little detail but powerful and lingering. Slightly bitter with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
The nose is quite closed with a little bit of reduction dampening the fruit aromas. Rounded palate structure with some residual sugar but a lack of fruit makes the wine quite simple. The cauliflower masks the residual sugar making this a great match.

Dr Ken Dobler
Light straw yellow. Amazingly complex nose with aromas of yeast, lees contact and mown hay. Wonderfully complex palate with obvious winemaking influences rather than fruit purity. That being said there is freshness of primary fruit apparent throughout the palate. Pairing with food accentuated the primary fruit flavours making this more complex style a great food wine.

Brent Marris
Fruit driven nose with hints of oak coming through. Lovely balanced nose of dried fruit and tropical characters. Lovely texture and excellent delivery. Well made. Ripe notes come out with the cauliflower. well matched.

Ying Tan
Creamy lightly toasty oaky nose. Med-bodied, dry, med-high acid. Oak dominated. Very little varietal character coming through. Cauliflower ameliorates oakiness, brings out a little more fruit but seems to emphasize oak dryness.

Sue Bastian
Pale and bright yellow gold. Rich nose of honey on toast and caramelized almond over yellow tropical fruits. Complex, fresh and intense palate. Fantastic length of yellow fruit and delicate buttery toast. Food makes the acid a little more prominent.
