Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Very green notes. Overly herbaceous. Very green and edgy palate. Too herbal for my liking. Lean and aggressive. Same with dish.

Meg Brodtmann
A greener aroma profile with snow pea and cut grass. On the palate, the wine is a little green and tight with residual sugar added to fill out the palate. Simple and confected. Conversely, the wine overpowers the food!

Dr Ken Dobler
Intensely mineral nose with aromas of flint and wet stone. The palate is deliciously savoury with dried herb and mineral notes complexed with attractive restrained primary fruit. The palate is long and savoury, works beautifully with food.

Brent Marris
Green tomato leaf nose following through to palate. Bright balanced acid. Length and freshness on palate. Clean obvious style with layers of flavour. A good match with the cauliflower. wine tomato leaf notes are toned down.

Ying Tan
Spicy, catís pee and gooseberry nose. Light dry, fresh gooseberry, herbal, dried floral mid-palate, elegantly structured, finishing long. Cauliflower brings out elegance of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Brilliant pale straw with yellow flashes. Moderately intense savoury nose Soft rounded mouthfeel, finishing with acidic freshness
