Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Grown mostly in the company-owned vineyard at Te Awanga and matured for 10 months in seasoned American oak casks, the 2004 vintage is full-coloured, with vibrant plum and red-berry flavours and a restrained oak influence in a fresh, smooth, fruit-driven style.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Grown in two vineyards and matured for a year in American oak casks, the 2002 vintage is deeply coloured and gutsy (14 percent alcohol), hut my bottle had a distinct whiff of acetic acid, giving it a slight vinegary character.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Delicious now, the smooth-flowing 1999 vintage was grown in the Wicken vineyard, near Hastings, and the company's own vineyard at Te Awanga. Matured for 10 months in seasoned oak casks, it's slightly green-edged on the nose and palate, but full-flavoured, with plum and red berry characters and a seductively soft finish. Drink it young
