Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
New Zealand's most awarded bubbly on the show circuit. This Chardonnay-predominant blend is hand-harvested on the south side of the Wairau Valley, at Renwick Estate and in the Brancott Vineyard, and matured for up to three years on its yeast lees. It is typically a very classy wine with delicate, piercing, lemony, appley flavours, well-integrated yeastiness and a slightly creamy finish. The 2007 vintage has a lemony, biscuity fragrance. It has citrus-fruit, yeast and cashew nut flavours, showing lovely freshness, depth, delicacy and harmony, which float effortlessly across the palate to a crisp, racy finish. The 2008 is very refined and vivacious, with rich, citrusy, slightly biscuity flavours, racy and long.

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
This Chardonnay-predominant blend is hand-harvested on the south side of the Wairau Valley, mostly at Renwick Estate, and matured for '3 to 5 years' on its yeast lees. It is typically a very classy wine with delicate, piercing, lemony, appley flavours, well-integrated yeastiness and a slightly creamy finish. The 2005 vintage is refined and tightly structured, with lovely delicacy and rich, citrusy flavours, intensely yeasty and nutty. It's a very elegant and harmonious wine, intense, tight-knit, long and refined. The 2006 is similar - very refined and finely balanced, with intense, citrusy, yeasty flavours, crisp and lingering.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
This Chardonnay-based blend is hand-picked on the south side of the Wairau Valley, at Renwick Estate, and matured for three to five years on its yeast lees. It is typically a very classy wine with delicate, piercing, lemony, appley flavours, well-integrated yeastiness and a slightly creamy finish. The 2002 vintage is supremely elegant. The bouquet is finely focused and toasty; the palate is smooth, citrusy and biscuity, with lovely freshness, delicacy, complexity and length. The 2003 is another winner - very stylish, with intense, citrusy, slightly limey flavours, yeasty, dry and lasting.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
Matured for several years on its yeast lees, this Chardonnay-dominated blend is typically an elegant cool-climate style with delicate, piercing, lemon/apple flavours, well-integrated yeastiness and a slightly creamy finish. A great aperitif, the 1996 vintage is a lively wine with delicate, lemony, appley fruit characters, nutty, bready complexities, good acid spine and a lingering, yeasty finish. Very refreshing and refined.

Michael Cooper (1994 Vintage) says
Matured for several years on its yeast lees, this Chardonnay-dominated blend is typically an elegant cool-climate style with delicate, piercing, lemon/apple flavours, well-integrated yeastiness and a slightly creamy finish. All about finesse, the 1994 vintage is a very stylish wine. It's a deliciously light, elegant, subtle and smooth-flowing wine, finely scented, with crisp, clean, subdued fruit characters and good yeast-derived complexity. However, a tasting in 1999 of magnificent, reserve batches of the 1990 and 1992 vintages, only recently disgorged, showed how much richer and more characterful the Blanc de Blancs would be with even longer lees-aging.
