Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Overt wood on the nose. Lacking some obvious fruit profile. A strong persistent palate. Short on finesse but some nice synergy of flavours with the dish.

Meg Brodtmann
Some mint and menthol on the nose with a lovely hint of lavender. A really attractive nose. The palate is quite meaty with the lavender persisting and firm tannins. A very young wine with plenty of fruit and weight to age well. Surprisingly, the wine appears quite dried out in the mid palate with the food and lacking fruit weight.

Dr Ken Dobler
Deep crimson red colour. Attractive nose of allspice and stewed plums along with some fresh sawn cedar. The palate shows lovely fruit weight with plummy flavours with complex oak influences.

Brent Marris
Lovely lifted ripe berry fruit and oak on the nose with hints of pepper and spice on the palate. Lovely chewy plum fruit with layers of chocolate and coffee amidst the integrated oak notes. A great match with the beef cheeks. Tannin, oak and fruit become more integrated.

Ying Tan
Deep red. Floral, violets, rose, red berries nose. Full, dry, tannic, slightly leathery black pepper, red berries and spice, fairly nice mid-palate complexity, texture, slightly saline. Long, red fruit and lightly floral finish. Beef Cheek is fairly neutral, does point up tannins a little.

Sue Bastian
Magenta. Intense dark fruits, chocolate and soy. Very complex palate with beautiful tannin structure and an abundance of fruit. Great length. Snap! Spice is good together.
