Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Designed for early drinking, the 2007 is a buoyantly fruity wine with cherry/plum flavours and supple tannins. The 2008 vintage, partly French oak-aged (30 per cent), is a pleasant, easy-drinking style, ruby-hued and floral, with vibrant cherry, plum and slight herb flavours.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Designed for early drinking, the 2003 vintage from Vavasour was hand-picked, 60 per cent in the Wairau Valley and 40 per cent in the Awatere Valley. Matured in small and large French oak barrels, it is full-coloured, buoyantly fruity and supple, with very good depth of ripe, plummy, spicy flavour, subtle oak and gentle tannins. In its youth, it's a real charmer.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Designed for early drinking, the 2002 vintage from Vavasour was hand-picked in the Wairau and Awatere valleys. Offering great drink-young charm, it is fresh and vibrant, with ripe, sweet-fruit flavours of plums and cherries and a silky-smooth finish. It's not a complex style, but immensely drinkable.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Designed for early drinking, the 2001 vintage from Vavasour is a single-vineyard red, grown in the Wairau Valley. Ruby-hued, it is charmingly fresh, vibrant and supple, with sweet fruit characters of cherry, raspberry and plum and a soft, Beaujolais-like structure.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Fragrant and supple, the 1999 vintage from Vavasour is an equal blend of Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley fruit, French oak-aged for eight months. Designed for early consumption, it's a moderately complex style, mouthfilling, with good depth of ripe cherry, plum and raspberry flavours, a touch of smoky oak and gentle tannins. Drink 2001+
