Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Attractive, pure nose. Excellent freshness. Second look shows the wine to be more clumsy and lacking some freshness. Slightly grippy phenolics

Meg Brodtmann
Showing some development with green pea and tinned asparagus. Quite simple and broad on the palate with green, mushy peas. Well matched with the cauliflower but not improved.

Dr Ken Dobler
Light straw yellow colour. Complex nose with yeast, fresh bread and mown hay aromas. The palate, too, is complex and long with attractive primary fruit and complex winemaking influences. Food accentuated the primary fruit notes in the wine.

Brent Marris
Lovely complex nose with slight guava and tropical notes. Hints of ripe fruit driven flavours with lovely slightly complex notes on the palate. Ripe and tropical with layers of flavour. A good match with the cauliflower. wine retains its complexity.

Ying Tan
Slightly dumb on the nose hints of lemony green melon. Light, dry, very high acid, mid-palate grassy lemon emerging with some coaxing. Dry grassy finish. Simple. Cauliflower fairly neutral with the wine.

Sue Bastian
Pale yellow gold. Hints of acacia bush and a little rubbery. Chalky acid a little low on fruit weight and length. Wine is dominated and match brings out bitter notes.
