Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Attractive, complex nose of honey and toastiness. Fresh. Rich and complex palate. A good harmony of flavours with the dish. Where other wines have been exposed with this flavour profile, this wine stands up.

Meg Brodtmann
Wet straw aromas suggesting a little bit of age. Lots of white blossom and some cut grass an interesting nose. Light bodied but not simple. Lots of lemon, cut grass, white florals. A very refreshing wine. A lovely wine with the food it is not enhanced but does stand up to the flavours.

Dr Ken Dobler
Bright straw green, really attractive nose showing cut stone fruit and just the mildest hint of toast. Palate shows complexity and length with lovely fruit drive. Tremendous complexity in the wine sits very well with food.

Brent Marris
Hints of nutty toasty fruit on the nose following through to the palate. Great structure and length. Hints of lovely sandalwood notes. A great match with the Celeriac dish. Nutty, toasty characters are highlighted and woodiness is still evident.

Ying Tan
Rich biscuit, honeyed, nougat, waxy, toasty apple nose. Light, dry, slightly waxy, hay, apple, light toast and butter. Long buttery, toasty apple finish. Long. Celeriac emphasizes oily waxy toasty character.

Sue Bastian
Pale yellow straw. Intense honey and toast. Searing acid balance with toasty aged Semillon notes. Good length. The toasty notes pop out with this dish.
