Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Very floral, lifted, grapey aromas. Ripe limes, nice mouth feel, delicate but textured with good length and a juicy, mouth watering acidity. Very palate cleansing with the food.

Warren Gibson
Nice bottle age character. Fresh and vibrant. Fresh fruits predominate. Some sweetness evident. An excellent match with the dish. Savoury and delicious.

Meg Brodtmann
Straw, lemon pith and a touch of apricot not hugely expressive on the nose. Residual sugar on the palate which makes it a bit broad and simple. Quite a dull finish, hampered by the sugar. Kerosene and Key Lime pie flavours. Seems a bit unbalanced with the fennel and tahini the sugar seems more overt.

Dr Ken Dobler
Very pale straw green colour. Restrained mineral nose with hints of citrus and wet stone. Refined off dry palate with good balancing acidity and length of flavour.

Brent Marris
Floral nose with a sweet fruit mid palate. Hints of dried straw and stoned fruit evident on the finish. Wine and fennel dish blend in nicely but wine is not lifted.

Ying Tan
Honeyed, lightly almond, herbal floral grapey lime-tinged nose. Oily, lightly nougat, lime tinged, floral palate. Med-bodied, dry, good mid-palate concentration of lime, grapey, floral flavours. Dry, spicy, lime and floral notes on finish. Moderately long. Fennel with Tahini and Sumac: fairly neutral impact on the wine that still showed its paces well.

Sue Bastian
Pale yellow straw Subtle stewed pear and lemon curd nose. Medium body and lower acid. Mod to low length. Goes quite well with fennel and creamy ness.
