Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Dense colour, charry and attractive with ripe fruits and spice but with some cooler aromatics as well. Slightly firm and hard on the finish. Lacks some charm. Similar with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
The nose gives the impression of cooked fruit baked plum and jammy. Over extracted with huge, drying tannins. Still very extracted and hot with the food.

Dr Ken Dobler
Intense dark crimson colour. Lifted nose with dark plum, blackcurrant jam and spicy aromas. Excellent primary fruit on the palate supported by sensitive use of oak. There is good fruit weight and tannic finish making this a good foil to food.

Brent Marris
Ripe berry fruit and black pepper nose. Hints of spice, dark cherries and sweet integrated oak characters. Lovely fruit driven tannins with layers of savoury and spice to finish. Ripe chewy tannins. A great match with the steak dish. Dark cherry characters and tannin work in harmony.

Ying Tan
Deep dense dark red-black. Oaky, crushed dark berries on nose. Med-full, very dry tannins, spicy dark berries. Simple. Dry red fruit on tail. Long. Sirloin brings out a savoury deeper edge to the wine

Sue Bastian
Very inky purple. Blue flowers, olives, dark berries, burnt toast complex. Intense, brooding dark fruits, lots of sandy/furry tannin. Drying finish. The wine tannin are a good match for this dish.
