Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Pure, attractive and spicy. Cracked pepper. Complex. Nice wine with good balance. Sweet fruited. Lacks another dimension though. A nice synergy with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Earthy, meaty and smoky on the nose. Oak becomes more evident on the palate but there is some redcurrant jelly and plum fruit to support the toasty, vanilla oak. Fine, dusty tannins. The food actually makes the wine appear even more oaky and quite hollow on the mid palate.

Dr Ken Dobler
Dark red with a crimson edge. Wonderfully intense nose with warm plum and hints of oak. Powerful palate without being clumsy. There is ripe plummy fruit supported by oak and a persistence of flavour to the back palate.

Brent Marris
Rich black pepper and stewed plum nose. Hints of leather and earthy characters coming through. Ripe chewy tannins, finishing with hints of chocolate and spice. A good match as the chocolate earthy notes are lifted.

Ying Tan
Deep dark red. Cracked black pepper, dark black berries, spice, dried floral notes on nose. Full, dry, tannic, cracked black pepper, black berries, spice, finely textured tannins, good mid-palate persistence balance. Dry ripe black pepper, fruit and floral finish. Long. Sirloin has neutral impact

Sue Bastian
Deep magenta. Blackberry jam, charry oak, pepper. More dark berry jam, menthol, sweet, burnt oak. More fuller bodied and oaky. Dominates dish.
