Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Very fresh fruited. Pure and attractive. Chocolate and mocha notes. Sweet tannins. Somewhat harder on the palate with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Quite smoky on the nose with some stewed peas and green bean aromas. The smokiness persists on the palate with some blackberry jam flavours. Quite chewy, drying tannins. Big improvement on the wine with the steak with the smokiness matching well.

Dr Ken Dobler
Complex nose with aromas of black berry, cedar and cigar box. Plate has more of a fruit drive but still retains its complexity. Fruit comes to the fore when paired with food.

Brent Marris
Lovely rich ripe fruit nose. Hints of wild berries and coffee coming through on the palate. A touch of mintyness and chocolate on the finish with lovely integrated oak. An excellent match with the steak as the oak and fruit become more integrated.

Ying Tan
Deep dark red. Pencil shavings, redberries, cassis blackcurrant nose –quite typically cabernet sauvignon on nose. Med-full, dry, ripe juicy tannins, cedary pencil shavings, redfruit, creamy oak influence supporting the fruit. Dry but soft lingering creamy redfruit finish. Long. Sirloin brings out cedary almost claret like character of the wine.

Sue Bastian
Deep purple. Intense nose of dark fruits, dusty oak, quite complex. Great fruit weight with more dark berries and soft green herbs. Lovely mouth-coating fine boned tannin. Great length. Gorgeous wine, good with meat dish.
