Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The 2007 vintage was estate-grown and fermented almost to full dryness (4 grams/ litre of residual sugar). It has good body and carries the dry style well, with strong, fresh flavours, rounded for Riesling.

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Top vintages of this wine are minerally and taut, with citrusy, appley flavours, crisp and intense. The 2006, a fully dry style, was grown in the Isabel Estate and McGinley vineyards, picked at 20 to 21 brix, tank-fermented and briefly lees-aged. It's a pale, lemony, slightly biscuity wine, lacking a bit of freshness, vibrancy and zing.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage has minerally aromas and a tight, intense palate with crisp, vibrant, citrusy, appley flavours, beautifully balanced and long. It's potentially outstanding. Tasted soon after bottling, the 2003 vintage is minerally and limey, with notable vigour and intensity. Crisp and tight, with racy acidity, locked-in power and a lasting finish, it should be at its best from 2005 onwards.
