Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Collards' vineyard at Waimauku in West Auckland yields a characterful wine with strong blackcurrant/spice flavours in good years, but in other vintages it is distinctly herbaceous. Verging on three-star quality, the 1999 is a flavoursome, green-edged wine, spicy, leafy and slightly leathery. I prefer the 2000, a full-coloured wine, mouthfilling, with plenty of blackcurrant, plum flavour seasoned with French oak.

In favourable vintages, Collards' vineyard at Waimauku in West Auckland yields a mouthfilling, deeply coloured red with strong blackcurrant/spice flavour, oak complexity and a lingering finish. The 1996 vintage is a big wine, richly coloured, with a slight lack of fruit sweetness but good concentration of spicy, complex flavour and a firm, tannic finish.
