Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted and fresh. Some greener notes. Attractive wine in the greener style. Fresh pea and herbal flavours with lingering acidity. An excellent match with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Confected aromas of passionfruit soft drink, pineapple lollies and a hint of snow peas. Intensely flavoured with passionfruit, ripe pineapple and mango – all supported by tight acid. Classic. Well matched but not improved.

Dr Ken Dobler
Mineral and dried herb aromas dominate the nose. The palate shows generosity and textural mouth feel with flavours of guava and fresh herb, has a decidedly savoury finish.

Brent Marris
Clean stalk nose with hints of underlying green herbal notes. Good texture, slight tropical notes on mid palate with ripe fruit elements on finish. Works well with the cauliflower as the lemon and lime characters “pop”.

Ying Tan
Green grassy gooseberry nose. Oily floral gooseberry, dry medium-bodied with firm backing acidity. Simple. Cauliflower brings more depth to the wine

Sue Bastian
Bright, pale yellow straw. Medium intensity, grass, lantana and hints of lanolin. Nice rich fruit palate. Moderate length. Good match
