Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Wood evident at first. Attractive ripe fruit. Complex, but slightly more one-dimensional than the best wines in the bracket. The barrel aging shows through a little strongly.

Meg Brodtmann
Clove and vanilla oak slightly dominate the cherry cola fruit character. Some earthy aromas. Juicy palate with loads of red and black fruits. Delicious, elegant and fine with generous fruit. Lovely pairing with the duck but no improvement in the wine.

Dr Ken Dobler
Light brick red. Really seductive nose with aromas of cherry, berry and dried herb. Palate is beautifully weighted with excellent mid palate and wonderful persistent of flavour.

Brent Marris
Big rich fruit driven nose. Ripe tannins on the palate with the depth of berry fruit coming through. Soft sweet fruit mid palate. Finishes with a good acid balance. A great match with the duck as hints of smoky notes and earthiness come through.

Ying Tan
Light ruby. Smoky spicy red fruit nose. Med-full, dry, slightly tannic, ripe red fruit med-concentration, lightly oaky balanced. Dry slightly lean finish. Duck Risotto brings out sweetness of fruit whilst maintaining a light tannic bite.

Sue Bastian
Mid ruby red. Attractive cranberry juice and mixed red berries with hints of charry notes. Medium bodied, lovely fruit weight on the palate rich with red fruits and toasty oak. Good length. Now thatís a bit yummy together.
