Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The 2004 vintage is yellow-hued, with honey and toasty aromas and flavours and a crisp, dry (5 grams/litre of residual sugar), slightly spicy and minerally finish. Ready.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
After a flat patch a few years ago, this label has bounced back to form. The scented and punchy 2002 vintage was grown at Gladstone and Waipipi. Dry but not austere, with good cellaring potential, it displays fresh lemon/lime aromas and flavours, showing a slightly minerally character and good intensity

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The latest releases lack the magic of the wines made by the founder, Dennis Roberts. The 1998 vintage) is crisp and full-bodied, with solid depth of apple/lemon flavour and a crisp, firm finish, but it's less scented, lively and piercing than those classy early vintages.

Michael Cooper says
Typically citrusy and appley in its youth, with a minerally streak and a crisp, dryish finish (7 grams/litre of residual sugar in 2008). It matures well, developing toasty, honeyed notes at around three years old.
