Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Slightly muted but attractive. A riper style. Hard dry tannins. Firm tannins again with the dish. Bitter

Meg Brodtmann
Lots of menthol character on the nose with spicy plum and aniseed. Loads of juicy berry fruit on the palate but the tannins are a little extracted and drying. The tannins definitely appear less drying with the food and the wine appears fine and elegant.

Dr Ken Dobler
Appealing spiced plum and black cherry aromas on the nose. Excellent plum and dark cherry flavours on the palate with a nice line of flavour.

Brent Marris
Rich ripe stewed plum nose. Big blackberry notes on the palate. Round richness on the palate with balanced ripe tannins. Lovely integrated leathery oak. Structure and power. A great match with the beef cheeks. Wine stays strong and harmonious.

Ying Tan
Deep dark red. Spicy red fruit, a little monolithic on the nose. Med-full, dry, tannic, black pepper, dark berries, a touch dilute mid-plate, simple fruit character. Dry finish, tailing very tannic. Likely to dry out with age. Beef Cheek emphasizes dryness.

Sue Bastian
Deep ruby. Lifted blue fruits and florals and buttery. Dusty slightly toasty oak. On the palate there is a bit of a minty lift, with lashings of fine grained tannin but nicely balanced with dark fruit. Complex elegant. Perfect match.
