Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Complex, attractive wine. Some funky complexity. Some Brett maybe. Lifted and complex flavours on the palate. Very long and powerful palate. Slightly bitter. Similar with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Chocolate and red licorice aromas. Bigger, more opulent style with black cherry and dark chocolate (like a liquid Cherry Ripe!). Really well supported by the food and makes it appear more elegant.

Dr Ken Dobler
Medium crimson red. Complex nose with aromas of black cheery and dried herb. Very savoury style with a really attractive long tannic Finish well supported by fruit weight.

Brent Marris
Slight lifted nose with hints of medicinal aromas. Firm tannins on finish of palate. Lifted fruit of berries and dried herbs. Tight tannins with slightly chalky elements. Hints of stalkiness on finish of palate. Wine still has medicinal notes and remains firm on the palate.

Ying Tan
Med-full, dry, lightly tannic dark cherry, red berry fruit. Mid- palate persistence. Dry fine lightly tannic finish. Duck Risotto emphasizes tannic dryness.

Sue Bastian
Mid ruby red. Medium intense red fruits dipped in balsamic vinegar and parsnip. Quite a complex nose. Good intensity on the palate. Fine silky tannin. Great match. Silky textures of wine and food meld.
