Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Lifted and pure. Attractive gentle spicy aromatics. Sweet fruit. Savoury palate. Long and lingering and balance is excellent. Sweet fruit and tannin working well with the sirloin

Meg Brodtmann
Quite a smoky nose with lifted plum, redcurrant and red licorice. There is plenty of jubey red fruits on the palate to support the firm, chalky tannins. Quite a big wine. Beautiful pairing with the wine appearing rounder and juicier.

Dr Ken Dobler
Medium brick red colour. Interesting red cherry and strawberry aromas on the nose. The palate is attractive with those red fruit notes and a long tannic finish which sits well with proteinaceous food.

Brent Marris
Lovely leathery ripe berry fruit nose and palate. Dark cherries and plum notes on the palate with sweet oak and ripe tannins to finish. Steak works well as the wine becomes less tannic.

Ying Tan
Medium deep dark red. Spicy, slightly herbal crushed blackberries, almost a touch of Syrah black pepper lurking in the background. Med-full, dry, spicy, tannic, firm dark berries, a little lightweight on fruit, black pepper, blackberries. Dry finish. A little short. Sirloin improves fruitiness.

Sue Bastian
Mid-deep ruby, with slight purple-brown tint. Intense, raspberry jam and hints of oaky spice. Medium bodied, with mouth-coating sandy tannin with a need for a bit more supporting fruit. This wine although has some complexity is a little insipid and not so good with this dish.
