James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; restrained melon and citrus fruit on the bouquet is supported by subtle oak; the harmonious palate proceeds down precisely the same pathway, with no obvious mlf character to obscure the elegant citrus/melon fruit. Here, too, the oak has not been overplayed.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
The slightly austere 1996 vintage was grown in the Petrie vineyard at Rakaia, in Mid Canterbury, and oak-aged for a year. Yellow-hued, it's a slightly green-edged wine, lacking real richness and ripeness of fruit, but offering plenty of lemony, buttery flavour, cut with fresh acidity. The French oak-fermented 1997 is a distinctly cool climate, austere style with lemony aromas and a clean, flavoursome palate with taut, racy acidity.
