Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Reduced nose, slightly smelly with lifted fresh notes underneath. Vibrant flavours in excellent balance. The wine opens up with time. Slightly grippy tannins. Acidity is accentuated with the cauliflower.

Meg Brodtmann
Cut grass and a little sweaty on the nose. The wine is quite dilute and simple with flavours of sweat and asparagus. Appeared more aromatic and fuller bodied with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Brilliant straw green colour. The nose shows attractive dried herb and cut grass notes. The palate is precise and long with delicate herbal flavours complexed with hints of tropical fruit.

Brent Marris
Ripe green, tropical notes on the nose following through to the palate. Hints of citrus on mid palate with lovely texture coming through on finish. Well balanced with nuances of herbal notes. A good match with the cauliflower as the wine stays bright and fresh.

Ying Tan
Grass, capsicum, herbs on nose, Light, dry, herbal, capsicum on palate, balanced, fresh, round on palate with persistent finish. Cauliflower sharpens definition, precision of the wine, nice congruence with spice and emphasizes creamy cauliflower character.

Sue Bastian
Pale, straw with light yellow tints. Delicate herbaceous green notes. Elegant, passionfruit palate Little grippy at the end of palate. This dish matches well with the cauliflower and in fact has more powerful fruit flavours.
