Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Complex, gamey, leather and spice aromas and some sweet oak. Quite full, structured palate, complex with touch of mushroom, leather and clove spice and structured firm finish

Stuart Halliday
A darker more structured wine, hints of vanilla oak in the glass. Complex dark fruit. Palate is firm, yet well integrated. Savoury finish, acid cleanses the palate

Oliver Masters
Medium dark red, lifted oak spice on nose, gentle medium bodied palate, finishes little bit short with good sappy spice freshness, better with duck paring

Natasha Hughes
Simple strawberry fruit and zesty acidity. Tannins rather firm on the finish but works well with food.

Corey Ryan
Brick brown hues, lifted simple red fruits, very savoury, touch VA aromatic undertones. Textural robust tannins a little 4 square simple, lacks generosity. The wine lacks the flesh to balance out the richness of the dish.

Matthew Deller
Medium/dark appearance. Wild black fruits, spice, liquorice, VA, violet. Quite dense, with fresh acidity and tough, green edged tannins. Moderate length. Food accentuates the greenness and leanness.
