Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Simple, lolly-like nose and full-flavoured and weighty, honeycomb-like palate with very good acid/fruit balance.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Hand-picked in Cromwell Basin vineyards, the 2009 vintage is scented, fleshy and well-rounded (6 grams/litre of residual sugar). Full-bodied, with a slightly oily texture, it has vibrant, ripe, peachy, spicy flavours, a hint of honey, and excellent depth and harmony.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Hand-picked in Cromwell vineyards, the 2008 vintage is a seductive, easy-drinking wine with slightly sweet flavours of peaches, pears and lychees, showing excellent ripeness and depth. Smooth, with a slightly oily texture, it's a great drink-young style, with some cellaring potential.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Matured on its yeast lees but not oak-aged, the 2004 vintage is an off-dry style (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), fresh, citrusy and lively. Full-bodied, with a gentle spiciness, it's a vivacious, cool-climate wine offering very good flavour depth.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Matured on its yeast lees but not oak-aged, the 2002 vintage is a basically dry style (4 grams/litre of sugar) with fresh, strong lemon, pear and spice flavours, balanced acidity and good length. It should age well. The 2001 was equally impressive, with excellent mouthfeel and depth.
Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines
Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The beautifully balanced 2001 vintage was tank-fermented and lees-aged, with no exposure to oak. A dry style, it has excellent mouthfeel (13.5 per cent alcohol), with fresh, strong flavours of lemons, pears and spice, some nutty complexity and a lingering, rounded finish.
