Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly grubby nose. Thiols. Second look better. Fresh lingering flavours. Firm structure. Lacking some grace. Even leaner with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Quite green aromas and this is reflected on the palate with the wine being quite dilute and acidic. Very simple wine and the level of acid suggests it needs food. The acid supports the food but the wine is still pretty simple.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive pale green colour. Intensely mineral nose with complex herbal undertones. Generously flavoured palate with cut grass and fresh herb notes and a mouth wateringly savoury finish. Food accentuated more of the primary fruit notes making the wine more attractive.

Brent Marris
Light elegant nose. Hints of green fruit elements on the nose and palate. Not super concentrated but well balanced. Finishes with a nice green stalk note. A good match with the cauliflower as wine has light acid lift.

Ying Tan
Creamy, apple, green melon nose. On palate, fresh, dry, light, good mid-palate persistence of green apples with light floral note. Dry finish, long. Cauliflower points up positive elements of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Bright watery straw with green flashes. Snow peas and herbs. Rich fruity and zesty palate. Good length of fruit. Acid of wine looks a little zestier with this dish.
