Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Very ripe blackberry, classy cedary sweet oak notes, some liquorice & spice. Rich, round and ripe with strong sweet oak in a silky and long palate with slightly hot finish. A powerful wines – looks a touch young now and needs time to settle. A bit hot with the food

Stuart Halliday
Ripe and fruit forward, dark black forrest fruit, sweet and jammy in the mouth, tannis are firm with a slight savoury firm finish. The wine seems to be completed with food

Oliver Masters
Dark red, rich warm plum jam fruited nose, succulent sweet red fruited palate. good match with beef cheek

Natasha Hughes
Jammy fruit and a resinous note. Chewy tannins, lavish sweet oak on finish. Rather monolithic.

Corey Ryan
Brick brown colour, lifted spice and minty oak aromas. A chewy textural wine, full flavoured, chunky blue grass oak characters, blueberry fruits, sweet vanillin. The food dish promotes the oak – not great.

Matthew Deller
Dark/black appearance. Classic traditional south Australian Shiraz, with old vine richness. Prune, date, black and blue fruits, liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate oak. Fresh acidity, excellent density, creamy old vine opulence and strong chewy tannin. Good length with a mocha finish. Food accentuates the old vine density and the exotic, liquorice flavours.
