SILVER MEDAL: 92 points

Judges Comments Intensely deep in colour with purple hues. The presence of oak is forward showing its attempt to produce a modern style of wine. Hints of spices, medicinal herbs, and christmas cake are moulded into a wine that has excellent fruit ripness and flavour concentration. Tannin levels are firm and reminensent of ground coffee beans.

BRONZE MEDAL: 87 points

Judges Comments Bright red hues showing its vibrancy and youthfulness. The generous use of vanillan oak sits at the forefront masking some of the juicy berry flavours. A technically well made wine that has some soft tannins and a medium finish. Easy drinking, crowd pleaser.
