Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Attractive fresh fruit. Green fresh fruit on the palate. Good length and persistence. Nice synergy with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Fresh straw, green apple and green mango aromas. Racy acid with lemon sherbet, green apple and passionfruit. Finishes a little short. Well matched with the cauliflower but the acid appears a little sharper.

Dr Ken Dobler
Bright pale green colour. Attractive tropical fruit salad notes on the nose. Those same tropical flavours on the palate with pleasing cleansing acidity. A very pretty fruit driven style with good acidity that pairs well with food

Brent Marris
Light elegant herbal notes. Clean and green with hints of spice. Good acid balance with hints of citrus on the finish. Lovely clean lime characters on the finish. Wine is improved with the cauliflower dish as wine acid is more bright and balanced.

Ying Tan
Strong citric tinged lemony-herbal grassy floral nose. Concentrated on palate showing typical Sauvignon Blanc green, grassy, herbal character through to long finish. Cauliflower emphasizes elegance, intensity and flavour components in harmony.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw with some green tints, Herbals and slightly smoky notes. Drying talky acid. Less fruit weight. The smoky notes of the wine meld well with this nutty, smoky cauliflower dish.
