Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Light colour, pure Riesling nose, talc/bath salts aromatics. Delicate palate, very fresh, lime and green apple, dry, crisp and long.

Warren Gibson
Very youthful. Fresh and vibrant. Too young at this stage. Just finding its feet. Floral and vibrant palate with lots of potential. Very disjointed with the fennel dish. Needs more time.

Meg Brodtmann
Wet stone, green apple, yellow apple and lemon juice aromas. High acid but fruit weight balances, leaving the palate fresh and fruity. Lovely, tight, seamless wine. Great match with the earthy tahini.

Dr Ken Dobler
Very pale straw green. Slatey, mineral aromas on the nose with just a hint of orange blossom. Very fine and refined palate with a clean mineral finish.

Brent Marris
Fresh floral nose with hints of citrus. Fresh palate with limes and lemons evident and a lovely balanced fruit driven structured palate to finish. A good match with the fennel as the floral notes come through more dramatically on the palate.

Ying Tan
Light grapey, floral nose. Light dry lean, thin fruit mid-palate. Dry lean finish. Fennel with Tahini and Sumac: more evident floral, fruit character, but an accentuation of the lean astringent finish.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw and bright Med-hi intensity grapefruit Zesty acid light body more citrus notes on the palate Moderate length and uncomplicated. Good match.
