Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Complex nose, violet aromas, dark berry fruit. Firmly structured palate, juicy fruit then solid firm tannin finish with good length. Complex wine with the food

Stuart Halliday
Rich ripe dark black fruits, powerful and structured, with some big tannis on the middle palate. On the finish, its drying and sweet all the same

Oliver Masters
Dark red, fresh bright lifted red fruit nose, crunchy red fruit tannins with sweet fruit finish, still looked bit youthful and oak driven with beef cheek

Natasha Hughes
Bright, attractive nose with lifted floral character. Mulberries and plums and a hint of orange zest on the palate, with lavish oak spice. Tannins are firm but well balanced by fruit, and the finish is long and fresh.

Corey Ryan
Deep crimson colour, lifted blue fruits focused aromas. A juicy concentrated full flavoured wine, well structured, robust, great intensity of flavour. The beef cheek and gravy flavours lift the structure components of the wine – more oak influence and tannin on the palate is perceived – wine better without food.

Matthew Deller
Dark/black appearance. Grape jelly, black fruit, liquorice, violet, reminiscent of Ruby Port. Clove oak. Taut, dense, mineral, granitic, with fresh acidity, strong austere tannins. Medium length, powdery finish. Food accentuates the primary exuberance and alcohol of the wine.
