Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly unusual nose. Lacks some purity. Complex, attractive palate Ripe fruits. Quite firm tannins. Lacks a bit of beauty.

Meg Brodtmann
Oak is the first impression on the nose with vanilla, clove and hazelnut. There are also aromas of dark cherry and plum compote. The wine has fine, chalky tannins which beautifully support the mulberry, plum and chocolate fruit. Quite an elegant wine with loads of fruit. Delicious with the beef cheek. This wine has enough of everything to stand out from the crowd.

Dr Ken Dobler
Medium brick red colour. attractive spicy, peppery aromas complexing with vinous notes on the nose. Palate shows lovely intensity of primary fruit with complexing oak treatment.

Brent Marris
Ripe berry fruit aromas with slight box hedge notes on the finish. Great length with ripe fruit driven tannins. Hints of ripe plums and slight earthiness coming through. A great match with the beef cheeks. Earthy characters are highlighted.

Ying Tan
Med-deep dark red. Fresh floral slightly confected redberries on nose. Med-full dry, tannic, simple peppery redfruit on palate, elegant backbone, a touch dilute. Dry, lightly creamy finish. Med-length.

Sue Bastian
Deep garnet red with slight brown tints. Intense blackberry, with leafy notes vanilla and spice. Follows on palate lovely furry tannin, ending with some attractive blue fruits. The spice of the dish and wine bring this match together nicely.
