Judges' Comments

Stuart Halliday
Just like a liquid Christmas pudding, all dried raisins, figs and currants, combine to produce a wine of great complexity and depth. The volatility adds character

Oliver Masters
Dark orange brown, intense almond butter and raisined fruit, intense sweet warm finish. Good match with roulade

Sue Bastian
Very dark burnt toffee colour. Thick and viscous in the glass. Intense prune nose with spicy macerated pears. Very viscous with lovely dried raisins. Finishing sweet. Some lovely coffee notes are enhanced with this match.

Natasha Hughes
Molasses, coffee and walnuts, as well as dried fruits. Viscous texture. Very sweet on the finish, with not quite enough acidity for balance.

Corey Ryan
Dark brown with green hues, lifted meaty tarry undertones spice, juicy fleshy style robust wine. Concentrated sweet. The bitterness of the chocolate promotes the richness of the wine, freshness of the fruits.

Matthew Deller
Deep mahogany, green olive tinged development. Prune, raisin, olive, dried flowers, espresso, molasses, candied walnut. Highly unctuous, and incredibly complex due to evaporative ageing. Lavish and richly textured, with warm alcohol, espresso ground grip and a long lavish finish.
