Judges Comments:

Wild Sika Venison Loin 3 Stars

Wild Sika Venison Loin 3 Stars

“A neat little venison loin on the platter, offering hope of fine flavour and a gentle nature. Remarkably tender, but having a real richness and a gamey note that more than fulfilled its potential”

“Gamey but fresh aroma, melts in the mouth with a bit of calf’s liver quality, a possible hint of grassiness from the forage. Quite delicate, the flavour does not linger but is subtle”

“Well it’s simple perfection, there’s nothing more to say. A privilege to taste this”

“Beautifully juicy and richly flavoured. Very lean and well flavoured venison”

Wild Sika Venison French Rack 2 Stars

Wild Sika Venison French Rack 2 Stars

“A pretty rack of venison here offering promise of good times ahead. Did they arrive? Oh yes! A rich gamey meat with tender attributes”

“A well trimmed rack of venison with a rich dark colour and succulent on first bite. The texture is meltingly soft. The flavour is very natural, almost delicate but with very clean venison characteristics. The texture is very good – no graininess at all”

“Very tender. Flavour is extremely delicate”

“Really well flavoured venison, very juicy and tender. Good looking, well butchered cut”

Wild Sika Venison Burger 2 Stars

Wild Sika Venison Burger 2 Stars

“Delicious-looking burgers with a rich, sweet, meaty aroma. It looks like it’s a coarse mince but we were amazed on eating at how soft it is. It almost melts. One judge who doesn’t like venison really liked it”

“This is Great Taste awards – it delivered!”

“Attractive rustic looking burgers, not too regular. We liked the softness of the meat and distinctive flavour with a balance of sweetness and gaminess – seasoning very good”

“A good looking burger, very moist and soft to the tooth – the flavour of venison is wonderful. Rich, good fat, sweetness and a balance of seasoning – well done and keep making these burgers!”

Wild Sika Venison Sausage 1 Star

Wild Sika Venison Sausage 1 Star

“These look handmade and rustic, with a rich colour, a deep venison smell and a good close texture. The first taste is promising”.

“We like the well cooked chipolata style appearance, the aroma is nice and natural, and we like the delicate flavour notes. The game flavour profile comes through well too. We like the grind of the meat and seasoning too”

“A well filled sausage. We like the venison: its moisture level and the lingering richness on the palate”
