Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Good, complex, slightly smokey notes, ripe berry and savoury aromas. Complex, velvety palate, good length

Stuart Halliday
Some sweet vanilla oak comes through on the nose, with some spiced red fruits also. Fruit sweetness on the palate also. Fine tannins, but a touch overpowered by the sweet fruit.

Oliver Masters
Medium red, complex charry spice aromatics, with hints of cherries and oak. Pretty gentle fine palate finishes with oak vanillin sweetness. Very nice pairing duck

Natasha Hughes
Fleshy, ripe wine. Somewhat jammy strawberry fruit character with rather too much in the way of sweet oak notes. Juicy finish. Good length.

Corey Ryan
Crimson colour, lifted struck match influence, ripe dark cherry fruits, some iodine aromatics A chewy textural wine with strong tannin extraction. Very structural wine. Good focus and length. When paired with the dish the wine has a lovely generosity of fleshy and focus. Fresh vibrant Pinot characters are complement by the savoury duck flavours.

Matthew Deller
Medium, dark appearance. Oaky, clove, cinnamon, baking spice, rhubarb, beet, strawberry, black raspberry. Fleshy, juicy, with quite fine velvety tannins subsumed by sweet fleshy fruit. Medium length. Food accentuates the oak, but also the savoriness and the warm ripeness of the tannins.
