Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
The Huntaway brand was sold by Pernod Ricard NZ in 2010. This characterful wine has usually been partly barrel-fermented. The 2009 vintage is highly attractive, in a distinctly Alsace style with considerable complexity and rich, soft flavours.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The 2007 vintage from Pernod Ricard NZ was grown at Riverpoint. Most of the blend was fermented initially in tanks, then in a large oak cuve, but 24 per cent was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels. Perfumed, with excellent weight and harmony, it's a mouthfilling wine with ripe lychees and spice flavours, showing some complexity, a slightly oily texture and a smooth, dryish finish (5.9 grams/litre of residual sugar).

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage is an aromatic Gisborne/Marlborough blend from Allied Domecq, full-bodied and slightly sweet, with good weight, varietal character and depth of lychees, spice and ginger flavours. Lush and exotically perfumed, with a softening finish, it's ready for drinking now. The 2003, grown entirely in Gisborne, is light yellow, citrusy and faintly honeyed, fresh and lively, but less rich than the 2002.
