Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Complex and attractive. A nice blend of ripeness. Excellent wine with complexity of fruit and a beautiful lingering freshness and acidity. Excellent synergy with the dish, especially the cashew notes.

Meg Brodtmann
A less pungent aromatic profile of straw, gooseberry and some white florals. The flavours are a little simple and the wine seems a little green with sharp, unbalanced acid. The cauliflower softens the acid but the wine is still quite simple.

Dr Ken Dobler
Brilliant pale green colour. Expressive nose with aromas of fresh herb and lychee. Tropical fruit flavours on the plalate with some herbal undertones and a dry savoury finish

Brent Marris
Bright round fruit on nose. Hints of green stalkiness, good citrus characters and hints of dried herbs on finish. Well-structured with ripe berry fruit elements. The cauliflower dish works well as the ripe berry elements become more pronounced.

Ying Tan
Light, simple floral grassy nose. Med-bodied, fresh, good concentration of simple grassy melon fruit on palate. Dry tail. Cauliflower freshens the wine and accentuates melon character

Sue Bastian
Pale straw and green tints. Delicate lemon sherbet nose. Follows on palate with a little bit of honeysuckle
