Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Complex, touch of matchstick on the aroma, plus ripe white nectarine fruit. Fresh, creamy with crisp appley acidity and good length

Warren Gibson
Complex. Some nutty complexity. Rich and complex palate. Some citrus and an excellent match with the dish. Long and lingering

Meg Brodtmann
Flint, oyster shell and apricot kernel on the nose quite an elegant nose. A bit more honeyed and full on the palate with fresh, ripe pineapple, wet stone, a hint of vanilla oak and some sweet mango. The wine appears a little rounder and broader with the fish. Still a a very good wine.

Dr Ken Dobler
Excellent straw green colour. Attractive nose with some white peach and lychee aromas. Attractive reserved palate with good primary fruit and an elegant mouth feel. Food accentuated the primary fruit characters in the wine.

Brent Marris
Creamy coconut nose through to palate. Slight bready, yeast notes with a lovely tropical hint. Integrated oak with a clearly defined structured finish. A good match with the fish as the tropical fruit notes blend in more.

Ying Tan
Oaky, apple, creamy toasty spicy nose. Med-full, dry, balancing acidity, but quite simple. Dry creamy, toasty finish. Long. Snapper is neutral with the wine
