Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Subtle hay and herbal notes. Slightly green. Fresh fruit. Pure. Quite a dry match with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Beautifully aromatic wine with jasmine, lemon pith, lemon curd and cut grass. The palate is less complex with a touch of residual sugar giving the wine some body. Chalky acid finish with lemon and cut grass. Becomes broad and simple with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Restrained nose with hints of citrus lanolin. Lovely delicate palate with restrained citrus notes and a lovely acid finish that pairs beautifully with food.

Brent Marris
Green herbal nose and palate. Great structure with lovely crunchy green apple fruit notes. Great length and balance. Bright and solid! Works well with the Celeriac dish. Green herbal notes are highlighted and wine remains balanced.

Ying Tan
Fresh green herbal apple nose. Light, dry, fairly persistent straight forward, herbal apple mid-palate. Dry, simple slightly lean finish.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw with green tints. Moderately intense lemon grass notes. Lots of green lemon and hints of grass on the palate with well balanced acidity for a young wine. The dish exacerbated the acid in this wine.
