Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
This is a consistently attractive wine. The 2003 vintage was hand-harvested, whole-bunch pressed and fermented in a mix of tanks (40 per cent) and French and American oak barrels (15 per cent new), with 25 per cent malolactic fermentation. An upfront style with a creamy, sweetly oaked bouquet, it's a full-bodied, moderately complex wine with strong, citrusy, slightly limey flavours, creamy and toasty. The 2004 is full-bodied, with generous, grapefruit and toast flavours and strong drink-young appeal.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
This is a consistently attractive wine. The 2001 vintage was hand-harvested from two vineyards and fermented in a mix of tanks and French and American oak barrels. All of the wine was lees-aged and went through a softening malolactic fermentation. Pale, with a creamy, slightly biscuity fragrance, it's a smooth, citrusy, flavoursome wine in a forward style, very ripe and rounded. The instantly appealing 2002 has butterscotch and sweet oak aromas leading into a full-bodied, creamy wine with very ripe-fruit characters, peachy, toasty flavours and a rounded finish.
