Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Fairly neutral, white pepper aromas. Simple fairly neutral palate

Warren Gibson
Very, very lifted and aromatic. A cooler expression. Leanish acidity. An excellent match with the dish. Long and lingering flavours.

Meg Brodtmann
Rose petals, geranium, jonquils lovely floral aromas and flavours but a slight bitterness and coarseness suggesting the wine is past its youth. May do well with the fish. The floralness does not pair well with the citrus of the fish. Not pleasant flavour wise but the wine does appear less bitter

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive bright straw green colour. Really pretty may blossom floral aromas. Lovely fruit driven palate without too much alcoholic heat but lovely length of flavour and persistence in the mouth.

Brent Marris
Bright floral spicy notes on the nose and palate. Hints of honey suckle and spice. Good texture with firm acid finish. A great match as the fish dish allows the wine to stay spicy with its hints of honey.

Ying Tan
Toasty biscuit oak, apple and melon nose. Med-bodied, dry, spicy, toasty oaky apple, melon. A touch dilute mid-palate. Dry finish. Falls short. Snapper teases out elegance, persistence and freshness of the wine.
