Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Ripe, perfumed cherry/strawberry and some whole bunch herbal lift. Good fruit on palate, slightly tart edge. Ok with food but slightly tart edge a little hard.

Stuart Halliday
Lovely perfumed wine, showing some varietal characteristics of ripe berry fruit, crunchy acid, great fruit and acid on the palate, lovely integration of fruit and oak

Oliver Masters
Medium dark red, purple tint, bright red fruits, violets and cherries on nose with hint of oak spice. Gentle warm palate with good fruit density and finishes with nice sweet oak impression. Good and enhanced with duck food match.

Natasha Hughes
Attractive, juicy red berry/cherry fruit underpinned by oak. Fleshy tannins. Good finish.

Corey Ryan
Youthful crimson colour, lifted vibrant fresh dark cheery forest floor, alluring and youthful aromatics. Juicy creamy new oak vanillin. A textural wine, with good acid line, clean, rounded but focused mid palate. Oak and fruit well balanced, refined and well structured. Delicious wine with duck / beetroot risotto, the freshness of the Pinot fruits and acidity cut through the risotto. The juicy savoury duck flavour complements the acidity and fine tannin of this wine.

Matthew Deller
Medium/dark appearance. Wild black fruit, rhubarb, spice, coffee, liquorice. Quite dense, fresh acidity, good velvety tannins. Warm alcohol finish with medium length of dark fruit and spice flavours. Food accentuates the greener elements of the nose and tannins.
