Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly dull nose. Closed. Excellent palate. Well balanced and lingering. Savoury tannins work well with the dish. Not a noisy wine but everything in balance.

Meg Brodtmann
An interesting nose of peppermint, violets, fresh licorice and hints of Port. Firm tannins but plenty of sweet, jammy fruit to support the structure. Interesting wine. Appears quite jammy and dried out with the steak.

Dr Ken Dobler
Attractive crimson red colour. Interesting earthy, vegetal aromas with a black olive undertone. More primary fruit flavours on the palate but still retaining a savoury character which pairs well with food.

Brent Marris
Light elegant nose and palate. Slight dried straw and hints of savoury. Delicate palate with balanced tannins. Wine improved with the steak dish fruit more lifted.

Ying Tan
Deep dark red. Dumb on the nose. Med-bodied, dry, red fruit, slightly floral. Very dry tannins. Sirloin is fairly neutral, sweetens fruit lightly, tannins still evident.

Sue Bastian
Dark cherry red. Understated nose. Blueberry and hints of cola. Nice dark cherry and sandy tannin. Good length. Not overly complex.
