Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The 2008 vintage is a freshly scented blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Malbec and Syrah. Pink/red, it has plummy, slightly spicy flavours, with a sliver of sweetness (7 grams/litre of residual sugar) and a crisp, vibrant, lingering finish.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This is an enticingly scented rose, fresh and fruity. Full of drink-young charm, the 2007 vintage is bright pink, with a floral, berryish bouquet. Vibrant, slightly spicy, crisp and refreshing, it's delicious from the start.

At its best, this is an enticingly fragrant Marlborough rose, fresh and charming. T aim it to be perfect on New Year's Day [after the vintage],' says John Forrest. The 2003, blended from Cabernet Sauvignon (40 per cent), Pinot -Noir (30 per cent), Merlot (20 per cent) and Syrah (10 per cent), has raspberryish, strawberryish, slightly spicy flavours, showing good delicacy and depth. The 2004 vintage is bright pink/red, with fresh, floral aromas and raspberry/plum flavours, slightly sweet (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), smooth and lively.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
At its best, this is an enticingly fragrant Marlborough rose, very fresh and charming. 'I aim it to be perfect on New Year's Day [after the vintage],’ says John Forrest. Totally undemanding, the 2000 vintage is bright pink/red, with fresh, attractive, raspberryish scents. With its strong berry, plum and capsicum flavours and smooth finish, it's an ideal summertime thirst-quencher.
