Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Ripe, spicy, lychee and rose petal aromatics. Lovely texture, ripe lychee and spice, very long warm and spicy finish. Quite complementary with the food

Warren Gibson
Spicy attractive, Turkish delight, rose petal aromatics. Youthful. Quite dry. Lacks some volume. Similar comment with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Rose and lychee nose with a creamy aroma. Rich, opulent texture with balanced residual sugar. Lovely example. Good match with the food but the aniseed of the fennel dampens the floral aspect of the wine.

Dr Ken Dobler
Light straw yellow. Effusive rose petal and confection nose. Lovely fresh palate with length and pure fruit flavours. Not cloying or clumsy.

Brent Marris
Lovely aromatic, spicy nose with hints of rose petal and Turkish delight. Lovely ripe fruit with aromas following through to the palate. Good acid balance and fruit sweetness. Lovely fennel dish with this wine as the texture works in well with the flavours.

Ying Tan
Spicy, longan, grapey ripe nose. Full, soft, ripe grapey, longan spicy off-dry good mid-palate depth and fruit on mid-palate. Off-dry finish. Long. Fennel with Tahini and Sumac: Fairly neutral with the food. Perhaps emphasizing the softness of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Mid yellow gold Mid intensity musk Soft palate fruity, sweet. Finishes sweet. Wine overpowers fennel dish.
