Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly dull and muted. Second look better. More aromatic. Green edged and fresh palate. Pure and long. Phenolics and acid accentuated with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
The nose is a little sweaty with some gooseberry and asparagus – more ‘green’ aromas. These aromas persist on the palate with a little residual sugar balancing the crisp acid. Seems more balanced and refreshing with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Complex nose with arms of talc, gunflint and some hints of guava. The palate shows ripe fruit flavours but the a decidedly savoury finish.

Brent Marris
Ripe round tropical stone fruit characters on the nose, following onto the palate. Hints of residual sugar. Slight cut straw characters with lovely lime acid finish. Good balance with the cauliflower dish as the wine stays round and fruit driven.

Ying Tan
Fresh pure, green herbal, lightly green capsicum, good mid-palate weight finishing slightly creamy. Long. Cauliflower strengthens flavour and balance of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Brilliant clear straw. Exotic flowers and tropical notes of medium intensity. Same flavours follow on palate. Lovely powdery acid mouthfeel. Pretty and understated. A pretty good match as flavours of wine and food are even.
