Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Grown in the company's closely planted vineyard in the Awatere Valley, the 2004 vintage was harvested at 22. 8 to 24. 5 brix and lees-aged before bottling. It's a scented, mouthfilling wine (14 per cent alcohol) with strong passionfruit/lime flavours, fresh acidity and a slightly sweet (9 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Grown in the company's closely planted vineyard in the Awatere Valley, the 2002 vintage is weighty, fresh and rounded, with deliciously strong tropical-fruit flavours (much riper than is usual in the Awatere). The 2003 was mostly handled in tanks, but 5 per cent was barrel-fermented (in old casks) and 12 per cent underwent softening malolactic fermentation. Ripely scented and weighty, it offers rich passion fruit/lime flavours, with lovely body, depth and roundness

Grown in the company's closely planted vineyard in the Awatere Valley, the 2002 vintage is weighty, fresh and rounded, with deliciously strong tropical fruit flavours (much riper than is usual in the Awatere). Cut with fresh acidity, it's an intensely varietal wine with a rich finish.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1999 vintage is the first white wine from a small Canterbury-based winery known for its classy Pinot Noir. Grown in the company's closely planted vineyard in the Awatere Valley and 10 per cent oak-aged, it's opening up well with bottle-age, revealing rich melon/lime flavours in a mouthfilling (14 per cent alcohol), punchy, immaculate style with fresh acidity and a powerful finish.
