Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
The 2006 vintage is a full-bodied wine with fresh, ripely herbaceous flavours and a bone-dry, rounded finish. Verging on three stars.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The 2004 vintage is punchy and tangy, with fresh, clearly herbaceous aromas and incisive melon/capsicum flavours, showing good vivacity and length.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; the bouquet is quite intense and clean albeit with lower aromatic qualities than the palate suggests it should have. Once you have the wine in the mouth, there is plenty of ripe fruit without in any way compromising the varietal character; well- balanced acidity and length. A good wine.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
This Central Otago winery doesn't produce a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc every vintage, but when it does, they're usually memorable. The 1997 vintage was a beauty, with a voluminous bouquet and strikingly rich flavour. The 1998 reflects the exceptionally hot season - it's a decent wine, but much more subdued than in past years. The bouquet is restrained; the palate full-bodied and rounded, with fresh, ripe flavours of apples, lemons and limes.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is intense, with rich, sweet tropical/ gooseberry fruit; a rich, mouthfilling and ripe wine on the palate, clean and very well made, and which does not cloy on the finish.
