Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Complex, fresh fruit. Pure and lifted. Plenty of wood but in balance. Complex. Excellent match with the dish

Meg Brodtmann
Oak appears more dominant on the nose with coffee and clove aromas. Silky, velvety tannins provide the support for the ripe raspberry, cherry and mulberry flavours. An elegant wine with lots of fruit sweetness. Beautifully paired with the duck and risotto.

Dr Ken Dobler
Bright red crimson colour. Attractive strawberry and herbal aromas on the nose. Wonderfully intense palate with ripe berry flavours paired with some earthy notes and a beautifully balanced tannic persistence. Those tannins were in great harmony with food.

Brent Marris
Big ripe primary berry fruit notes on the nose with hints of well integrated smoky oak. Characters follow through to the palate with ripe tannin and balanced acidity helping lift the palate. Hints of chocolate and spice are evident on the finish. A great match with this duck dish. Wine takes on a lovely level of tension making it superb!

Ying Tan
Light red. Sweet crunchy red fruit on the nose. Med-bodied, dry, tannic, spicy dried wild strawberry. Simple. Dry finish. Straightforward. Duck Risotto emphasizes sweet fruit but lingering dryness evident

Sue Bastian
Medium ruby red. Medium intensity of mint, spice and baked rhubarb. Medium bodied with sweet red fruits and soft green herbs. A little lean on the palate with moderate length. This is quite a pleasant wine with the duck.
