Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Fragrant, ripe berry and black pepper spice. Young, bright berry fruit and some savoury, slightly herbal notes. Nice tannins. Excellent foil with the food

Stuart Halliday
White pepper and spice. Medium tannin structure, good palate weight, ripe fruit, not extracted, lovely integration of fruit and

Oliver Masters
Dark youthful red, primary red fruited nose, gentle fine fruited palate, still very primary and dark fruited with BBQ Octopus

Natasha Hughes
Very much a cool climate style, with smoked meat and black pepper flavours, linear structure and sinewy tannins. Hints of violets on finish. Probably at its best when paired with a smoky hunk of barbecued lamb as it doesn’t have the depth of palate to cope with complex flavours.

Corey Ryan
Crimson hues, perfumed peppery ripe blueberry and spicy red-licorice aromas. Chewy textural wine good intensity robust wine, oak driven, chewy fleshy wine. The BBQ notes of the dish and rubbery texture of the octopus promote the lifted pepper and blue fruit undertones – works well.

Matthew Deller
Medium dark appearance. Typical NZ style, with bright, aromatic white pepper, floral and berry fruit nose, subtle clove, cinnamon oak. Fresh palate with good concentration, crisp acidity and sappy tannins. Medium length. Food works well, highlighting the crispness and freshness of the wine.
