Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted fresh attractive. Vibrant and cleansing palate. Nice acidity. Excellent match with the dish. Beautifully alive and savoury.

Meg Brodtmann
Sweaty! An aromatic profile like Sauvignon blanc?! Residual sugar, Sauvignon thiol character – not what a rose should be, to my mind. Doesn’t get better with food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Excellent pale pink colour. Attractive vinous nose with strawberry and reshape notes. Really attractive primary fruit on the palate which is beautifully balanced and long.

Brent Marris
Lovely elegant rose water nose. Excellent balance of fruit and acidity on the palate. Fresh long and lingering. Delicate. A great match as the wine really comes alive. Great freshness and fruit delicateness comes through.

Ying Tan
Light pink rose. Savoury cherry, strawberry fruit on nose. Med-bodied, spicy, roses, cherry, mineral savoury edge to the slightly sweet fruit. Dry clean red fruit finish. Long. Leek Quiche subdues the fruit, dries out the wine.

Sue Bastian
Pale cherry red Intense, herbaceous and red berries Rich palate, dry with some sandy tannin Good length. Perfect.
