Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Very attractive, ripe pure nose. A big rich wine in balance with plenty of oak sweetness lengthening the palate. A nice synergy with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Earthy and savoury on the nose, the wine is more meaty than fruit. The palate has a bit more fruit than the nose but the drying tannins detract. Despite the food, the wine still finished dry and metallic.

Dr Ken Dobler
Intense dark crimson purple colour. Attractive black olive and bramble aromas. Intensely flavoured palate which is interesting and long. The tannins are assertive but are tempered by food.

Brent Marris
Big rich plumy notes on the nose. Hints of clove and nutmeg on the palate. Wild berry fruits on the mid palate. Finishes with drying tannins. Works well with the steak as the tannins are less gripy and the rich plumy notes are highlighted.

Ying Tan
Deep dense opaque red black firm to bright red rim. Spicy, oaky concentrated dark fruit on the nose. Full, dry, tannic, spicy, herbal, crushed red fruit, firm backbone. Dry creamy finish, touch of dried flowers and red fruit on the tail.

Sue Bastian
Inky magenta. Intense spice, coffee and dark fruit, complex. Rich dark fruits and coffee on the palate. Slightly burnt wood notes overpower the palate. Good length. The oak of the wine dominates this dish.
