Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Grown a few kilometres south of Martinborough township, this wine is mostly fermented and lees-aged in tanks, but partly fermented with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak barrels. Drinking well from the start, the 2011 vintage is mouthfilling and dry, with pure, ripe gooseberry/lime flavours, slightly minerally, fresh, poised and lingering.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Grown a few kilometres south of Martinborough township, this wine is mostly fermented and lees-aged in tanks, but typically about 12 per cent of the blend is barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2008 vintage is mouthfilling, ripe and rounded, with strong tropical-fruit flavours, good acid balance, a touch of complexity and a fully dry finish.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Grown a few kilometres south of Martinborough township, this wine is mostly fermented and lees-aged in tanks, but a minor portion is barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2004 vintage has fresh flavours of melons and limes, showing moderate intensity, finely balanced acidity and a smooth, dry, lingering finish.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Grown at the company's site a few kilometres south of Martinborough, the 2003 vintage was mostly fermented and lees-aged in tanks, but 11 per cent of the blend was barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. Notably weighty and concentrated, it's a non-herbaceous style with very rich, ripe flavours of pears, apples and grapefruit, lively acidity, a slightly miner-ally streak and excellent vigour and depth.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
More forthcoming in its infancy than its two Marlborough stablemates (above), the debut 2002 vintage (tasted very shortly after bottling, so not rated) was made from first-crop, very low-yielding vines (3.5 tonnes/hectare). Fermented to dryness and aged for an extended period on its light yeast lees, it's a smooth, impressively rich wine showing excellent ripeness and intensity and a powerful finish. Potentially outstanding.
