Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly odd, some greens and slightly reduced. Palate is quite aggressive and mean

Meg Brodtmann
Enticing nose with herbal notes, sweet spice, some confected red berry fruit and a touch of roast meat. Very complex on the nose. Classic cool climate Syrah flavours of spice, dried herbs and charcuterie – all supported by fine, dusty tannins. The sweetness of the sauce takes away from the fruit sweetness mid palate but it does return on the finish. Not the best match but the wine is still great.

Dr Ken Dobler
Brilliant crimson colour. Attractive stewed plum and vinous aromas on the nose. Rich fuller bodied wine with a lovely tannic persistence that suits food.

Brent Marris
Big rich dark fruit nose with lovely rich ripe savoury notes on the palate. Well integrated fruit and oak finishing with ripe tannins and hints of chocolate and coffee. Works well with the beef cheeks as a lovely cigar box character comes through.

Ying Tan
Deep red. Plummy redberries, touch of black pepper and spice on nose. Full, dry, firm finely grained tannins, crushed redberries just a touch jammy but elegant mid-palate weight. A little simple. Dry red fruit and spice finish. Med-long.

Sue Bastian
Deep purple. Dark fruits and lots of mocha. Intense dark brooding fruits on the palate and well balanced oak. Good length of flavour and moderate to highly complex. A pretty harmonious match.
