Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted pure nose. Ripe fruits. Charry notes on the plate. Strong acidity. Good length

Meg Brodtmann
Whole bunch aromas with some stalks. Velvety tannins with cherry and strawberry fruit profile. Lovely and rounded with a touch of licorice and sweet spice. The earthiness of the beetroot supports the stalkiness.

Dr Ken Dobler
Lovely light crimson colour. Effusive nose with strawberry and raspberry notes. Palate has excellent fruit flavours with mid palate richness and length - very seductive.

Brent Marris
Bright fresh vibrant aroma of floral berries. Slight savoury nose, firm acid and soft tannins. Good length with a balanced acid finish. Wine goes well with the duck as the firm acid becomes softer and wine appears more balanced.

Ying Tan
Pale ruby. Spicy cherry, crunchy red fruit on nose. Dry spicy balanced, moderately concentrated mid-palate fruit. Dry lightly creamy finish. Long Duck Risotto points ups dryness of tannins.

Sue Bastian
Mid ruby red. Medium intense red fruits and soft green herbs Rich ripe red fruit palate Lovely balanced tannin, fruit and acid. Melds well with duck and beetroot earthy flavours and acid.
