Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Ripe berry, complex and savoury. Medium bodied, complex and floral/savoury with firm acid edge and a firm tannin finish. Worked well with the food

Stuart Halliday
Savoury juicy wine, dusty earthy tannin structure. A wine to be consumed with food

Oliver Masters
Dark red, subtle warm baked red fruit nose, gentle tight youthful palate. Still looked very primary and youthful with beef cheek

Natasha Hughes
Dense wine with deep colour and baked plum fruit. Spicy finish with a bright uptick of acidity.

Corey Ryan
Brick brown hues, lifted dried herb and savoury aromas. Chewy textural robust tannins, good mouthfeel and length. The beef cheek dish promotes the barbera aromatics, the tannin of the wine is strong and works with the gravy and sweet potato.

Matthew Deller
Medium, dark appearance. Very good example of old vine Barbera. Complex, black fruits, savory, peat, liquorice, granite, violet. Dense with high acid, and string, chewy tannins. Good length, tannic, granitic finish. Food accentuates the string, drying tannins.
