Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage is a strong candidate for cellaring. Boldly coloured, it is packed with cherryish, plummy flavour, seasoned with spicy oak. A youthful, firmly structured wine, it should be at its best from 2005 onwards.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Promisingly full in colour, the estate-grown 2000 vintage is full and generous, with a plummy bouquet showing vegetal and forest floor complexities. An impressively rich, concentrated and well-structured wine, with strong plum/cherry flavours and firm, ripe tannins, it is drinking well now, but also well worth cellaring.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Still developing, the 1998 vintage has bright, fullish colour, with bacon and spice aromas. It's a complex, savoury style with vibrant, cherryish fruit characters wrapped in toasty oak and smooth rannins. A finely balanced wine, it should mature gracefully.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
Still developing, the 1997 vintage is a highly attractive, complex red with a full ruby hue. The palate is mouthfilling, ripe, supple and harmonious, with excellent depth of cherryish, spicy flavour and a savoury, persistent finish. You can drink it now with pleasure, but it's well worth cellaring.
