Judges' Comments

PAUL WHITE

Lots of liquorice and black berry fruits. Tart blackberry flavours. Some length. Fairly linear wine. Nice acidity on the finish. Lovely, juicy red fruits here. Great with the kangaroo’s gaminess. Long impressive wine. Good match.

IVAN DONALDSON

High toned fruit. Ripe and succulent. Coconut hints coming through as well. Plump and velvety.

BRENT MARRIS

Big oak and fruit. Oak tannin on the palate. Rich sweetness in the mid palate. Slight tarry, charry characters. Big tannin attack on the finish. Good match with the pie. Its tarry chocolate characters blended in with the fruit. Great balance.

KEN GARGETT

Soft coconutty oak. It’s perhaps a little overdone. Some blackberry flavours. It’s a big, ripe, juicy style. Soft. Simple. Long, but there is quite a lot of oak and some soft tannins as well. The flavours of the food and wine are okay together, but they flatten a little at the end. Perhaps because of the oak.

PETER FORRESTAL

Some cedary oak characters dominated a little. A supple texture. Some dark berry flavours. Firm, drying tannins which I found a bit unattractive. Better with food. The tannins were less overtly drying, but the wine was still firm and tannic at the back.

PAM DUNSFORD

Lots of oak in the nose and palate over some mint and berry fruit. Reasonably smooth finish. With food, there is too much oak but the wine cuts through the bacon fat. It’s a good combination with the pastry which neutralises the tannin in the finish.

HUON HOOKE

Dark berries, nice and ripe. Slightly Claret like structure. An elegant, leaner style of red wine. This has got a firm finish. A little bit astringent by itself but much better with the dish. It matched the food very well. The food did not reveal any green tannins, which is a good thing.

GHISLAIN LAFLAMME

Fresh mouth. Good fruits. Supple structure. Velvet tannin. The fruits of the wine improve the dish and produce a new taste.

RODNEY KEMP

Dominant vanillin oak. A touch coconut. Appealing berry lift. Rich, big fruit driven style which can handle the amount of oak. Slightly salty?

MARGARET HARVEY

Delicate, minty cherry notes and a hint gamy. Good tannins present. Not much change to the wine or the food. The minty notes tend to fade but light cherry notes come to the fore. The gamy note goes as well.

GERHARD ZIEMER

Minty chocolate American oak flavours dominate the brambly berry and cassis flavours. Finishes very chewy and dense. It may come into its own over time. With food, its finish barely tempers, but no harsh or green flavours emerge. This is an extremely intense and tannic wine for fans of that style.

ANGELA LLOYD

Very oak dominated and it’s far too oaky with the food.
