Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Complex and nutty. Barrel ferment. Slightly funky in a positive way. Nutty and creamy palate. Long and lingering. Excellent complex wine that had moderate synergy with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Floral with a touch of honey and apricot jam. An interesting nose. A bit broad and simple on the palate and falls short. Still very simple and broad with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Intense gun flint and dried herb aromas on the nose. Seductive mineral palate with enough primary tropical fruit notes to give freshness and attraction but finishing with a delicious savoury note.

Brent Marris
Lovely complex notes on nose. Layers of flavour. Hints of oak, yeast and ripe fruit. Good acid notes with layers of flavour. Hints of mango, dried fruit and slight yeastiness of finish. A lovely balance with the cauliflower. wine remains complex and full

Ying Tan
Floral, lightly grassy green melon nose. Med-bodied, relatively soft, easy slightly creamy oaky fruit on palate. Soft creamy oaky finish. Cauliflower lightly points up fruit.

Sue Bastian
Mid yellow gold with golden rim Intense nose with exotic fruits and flowers and some hits of honey. Opulent yellow tropical fruits on the palate which is rich and round. Finishes a little abruptly. This food and wine pairing is mutually agreeable.
