Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Pale colour, light floral nose, delicate talc aromas. Clean, crisp and bright, slight beeswax notes. Very young and fresh

Warren Gibson
Complex, attractive. Still very youthful but complex. Firm tannins, dry and austere on the palate. Fresh and pure and competes with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Struck match on the nose which detracts a bit from the fruit. Floral, apricot kernel, green apple with a tight line and crispy acid finish. Very young. Lovely match with the food. The wine is very young but the acid supports the earthy tahini.

Dr Ken Dobler
Very pale straw green colour. Hints of musk and citrus on the nose but is quite restrained and subtle. Very attractive palate, fine, precise and very pretty citrus flavours. Excellent length flavour.

Brent Marris
Medium intensity nose with citrus and grapefruit characters on the palate. Firm acid balanced with a lovely sweetness. Well matched as the fennel and the wine have similar lifted notes.

Ying Tan
Light, herbal, floral, slightly green nose. Light, dry, fresh, zesty lime-tinged fruit. A little one-dimensional on palate. Dry lean, slightly short finish. Fennel with Tahini and Sumac: Brings out food more than a wine, but a nice pairing, improving the approachability of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Pale straw, slight grey tints. Medium intensity, lemonade. Medium body and acid, little fruit weight
