Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Deep red. Complex blueberry muffin, black pepper spice and attractive floral lift. Vibrant blueberry flavours, lovely spice, medium body and powdery tannin finish. Refreshing foil with the food

Stuart Halliday
Lovely and varietal, well balanced white pepper and spice. Tannins and fruit very well integrated

Oliver Masters
Dark youthful red, intense sweet boysenberry, primary dark dense tannins, fresh fruit, needs time. Still very dark tight bright with sirloin

Natasha Hughes
Lifted nose of smoked meat and cracked pepper. Sinewy tannins and bright acid. Nicely balanced, although slight hole on mid-palate.

Corey Ryan
Crimson in colour, lifted pepper and spice red licorice aromas. Chewy textural robust full bodied style good acid line. The beef dish lifted the pepper and spice in the wine, however the dish highlights a slight hollowness on the mid palate. Promotes the acidity of the wine.

Matthew Deller
Dark. NZ style of Syrah with fragrant, black fruit, liquorice, black pepper, clove oak nose. Crisp, taut, crunchy. Good length.
