WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Fragrant, creamy bouquet. Complex, barrel-fermented style (20% new, French), weighty and finely textured, with lemony, slightly appley and nutty flavours, showing good drive and immediacy.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The 2007 vintage was grown at Alexandra, in Central Otago. Fermented in French oak casks (20 per cent new), it is weighty and finely textured, with a fragrant, creamy bouquet and lemony, slightly appley and nutty flavours, showing good drive and immediacy.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
This Central Otago wine is consistently enjoyable. The 2002 vintage matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), is a fleshy, flavoursome and toasty wine with mealy, creamy aromas, ripe-fruit characters, firm acidity and good potential.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
This Central Otago wine is consistently enjoyable. The 2000 possesses strong, 'malo'-derived, buttery/cheesy characters, with firm acidity woven through its citrusy, peachy flavours, which show good depth. The 2001 vintage, fermented and matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), is a ripely fragrant wine with strong, toasty oak aromas. A full-bodied wine with rich, peachy fruit characters, it has good complexity and a rounded, creamy texture.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage of this barrel-fermented Central Otago wine is reasonably flavoursome, but lacks real ripeness, richness and charm. I prefer the 1999. French oak-aged for a year, it's a youthful, elegant wine, full and clean, with balanced acidity and good depth of citrusy, slightly mealy flavours.
