Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Scented and light, youthful wine with finely balanced, slightly sweet lemon and lime flavours, showing good freshness, delicacy and intensity. Best drinking 2014+.
Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the Waimea Plains, the 2011 vintage is still very youthful, with fresh lemon, apple and lime flavours, slightly sweet (13 grams/litre of residual sugar) and crisp. Showing very good depth, it should blossom with cellaring.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the Waimea Plains, this wine is always full of personality. The 2009 vintage is a distinctly medium style (18 grams/litre of residual sugar), handled entirely in tanks. A mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity wine with strong citrusy, limey flavours, a hint of passionfruit and appetising acidity, it's well balanced for easy drinking.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the Waimea Plains, this wine is always full of personality. The 2005 vintage is a medium-dry style (14 grams/litre of residual sugar), fermented in tanks and old oak barrels. Fresh, juicy and smooth, with gende sweetness, it's a finely textured wine with lemony, appley flavours showing excellent ripeness, delicacy and harmony. Delicious in its youth

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the Waunea Plains, this wine is always full of personality. The 2002 vintage, picked with no botrytis influence and fermented to full dryness, should mature well for years. Bright, light lemon/green, it is tight, intense and zingy, with penetrating lemon/lime flavours threaded with appetising acidity. Open mid-2004 onwards.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage is a dryish wine (five grams per litre of sugar) with very good flavour depth. Eight yellow/green, it's a full-bodied style with well-ripened citrusy characters, a hint of tropical fruits and a fresh, crisp finish.
