Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Pure, varietal Cabernet notes. Fresh and vibrant. Fresh fruit driven style. Simple but attractive. Fresh fruit and savoury tannins predominant with the dish. Excellent

Meg Brodtmann
Interesting nose with a herbal note and jammy black fruits – slightly under ripe and overripe at the same time. The palate is juicy with lots of blackberry, black cherry and vanilla oak. Fine, chewy tannins support the rich fruit. The beef cheek makes the chewy tannins softer and more approachable.

Dr Ken Dobler
Dark crimson red. Really attractive nose with aromas of black currant, olive and cigar box. Exceptional palate that treads the fine line between primary fruit and tannin structure. This more tannic style is an excellent foil to food.

Brent Marris
Lovely ripe black current characters on the nose. Hints of cedar wood and musk on the palate. Lovely savoury notes with a touch of clove and dried mint on the finish. Works well with the beef cheeks. Length weight and acid lift both the food and the wine.

Ying Tan
Deep dense dark red. Blackberries, plum slightly capsicum, pencil shavings nose. Full, dry, dense dark blackcurrant, tannic spicy lightly minty straightforward fruit. Full, creamy, fruity finish. Med-long, tailing hot.

Sue Bastian
Deep purple. Dark plum, soft fresh green herbs. Rich fruit palate with plum and sweet oak. Soft sandy tannin more medium bodied.
