Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted and pure. A nice balance of ripeness. Some sweaty notes melded with fresh green notes. Excellent match with the cauliflower dish. Fresh and vibrant flavours predominate

Meg Brodtmann
The wine has plenty of Sauvignon aromatics of passionfruit, gooseberry and snow pea but the palate is a little dilute and has less intense flavours. Quaffable but a little simple. No improvement with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Restrained nose with aromas of custard apple and mineral hints. The palate shows those lovely tropical flavours with a cleansing finish

Brent Marris
Ripe fruit nose follows to palate. Hints of herbal notes, cut grass and dry flowers. A lovely depth exists to this wine finishing with balanced and acid and fruit drive. A good food match with the cauliflower. Structure and fruit become more balanced.

Ying Tan
Spicy, oily, herbal, gooseberry, grassy nose. Med-bodied, dry, nice weight of grassy gooseberry, finishing long. Cauliflower has a lovely mutual integration of flavours pointing up the balance and intensity of flavour on the wine.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw with green flashes. Quite intense passionfruit and lantana notes. Good fruit concentration on palate and acid balance Good length of flavour. This wine and food match sings. Great match.
