Judges' Comments
Warren Gibson
Reduced, smelly nose. A hard woody palate. Clumsy. Some hardness remains with the duck dish

Meg Brodtmann
A bit more simple in style with quite a lot of red berry fruit on the nose but more reserved and earthy on the palate. The wine finishes a little dry. With the duck, the drying tannins are improved but the wine still seems quite confected and simple.

Dr Ken Dobler
Deep cherry red, with attractive savoury aromas of maraschino cherry, toast and dried herb. Palate shows richness and weight with a musk like intensity and a long tannic finish. Very ripe and very powerful.

Brent Marris
Rich lovely black current fruit with hints of stalk and integrated oak. Good ripe tannins with a great acid finish. Fruit sweetness in the mid palate balances the wine beautifully. A great match with the duck as the wine becomes more rounded and complete. Oak and fruit become more integrated.

Ying Tan
Light med-red. Smoky, lightly earthy dark cherry, spicy cherry nose. Med-full, dry, ripe sweet fruit core. Textured, lightly tannic ripe. Dry, ripe finish. Long. Duck Risotto accentuates freshness of fruit, balance, and a counterpoint of savoury undertones.

Sue Bastian
Mid ruby with pink rim. Complex smoky notes. Rhubarb and red berries. Medium body with silky tannins and more mixed berries. Smoky wine and earthy food notes merge nicely.
