Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Corbans' barrel-fermented, lees-aged wine promises 'exotic fruit and smoky oak' - and typically delivers the goods. The 1995 to 1998 vintages were all grown in Gisborne, but the 1999 is based on Marlborough grapes. The 1998 vintage was oak-matured for 10 months and 90 per cent of the wine went through a softening malolactic fermentation. A gently herbaceous style, it is creamy and rounded, with enjoyable although not intense melon/capsicum flavours.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; strong barrel ferment characters introduce the wine with high-quality oak, and herbal fruit showing through underneath. There is quite rich, tropical accented fruit on the palate, once again surrounded by voluminous barrel ferment oak flavours. All in all, a striking wine.
