Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Dense, ripe nose with ripe fruit and sweet oak in balance. Dense, concentrated wine. Not particularly varietal. Woody and overly structured with the sirloin dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Intriguing nose of violets, fresh licorice, charcoal and some lavender. Beautifully textured with the lavender persisting and some rosemary. Firm tannins. Well matched but not improved.

Dr Ken Dobler
Deep crimson colour. Intense eucalypt aromas jump out of the glass but there is underlying plummy fruit making the nose complex and interesting. Lovely fruit drive on the palate with dark plum, vanilla and tobacco notes. The palate is long and flavourful with a good tannic backbone.

Brent Marris
Big dark sweet fruit nose and palate. Sweet fruit and oak with a very drying chewy tannic finish. Slight confectionary nose and palate. Wine works well with the steak but sweet fruit still dominates.

Ying Tan
Dark red. Oily, oaky crushed dark fruit on nose.Full, tannic, dark fruit, dark crushed fruit, concentrated mid-palate, oaky floral notes. Dry ripe finish. Long. Sirloin points up floral aspects of the fruit, emphasizes complexity.

Sue Bastian
Very dark purple to black Intense nose, with lashings of charry oak. Plums and slight black pepper. Full bodied, plum, vanilla, spice and nuts. A bold wine with lots of oak. Dish makes wine bitter, and more oaky.
