Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Very youthful and yeasty nose. A fruity, fresh style with nice drive on the palate. Good balance with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Floral, orange peel and acacia aromas very fresh and fruity. Great textured mouthfeel with chalky acid and fruit salad flavours. Not a bad match with the celeriac but not improved.

Dr Ken Dobler
Lovely pale straw colour. Generous aromas of guava and melon on the nose. The palate is similarly generous and fruit driven with a cleansing acid finish. Food accentuated the lovely primary fruit notes in the wine.

Brent Marris
Lovely floral rose petal nose. Hints of nectarine flesh with lovely lychees notes coming through. Well balanced acid and fruit. A great match with the Celeriac dish as the floral notes and lychees character are lifted even more.

Ying Tan
Light floral apple, straightforward balanced wine. Celeriac good match, stays simple.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw with hints of pink. Intense spicy cologne, and herbs. Lovely mouth watering acid, more grigio. Mod length and flavour. This wine a little acidic for this dish.
