Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
The 2009 vintage is an easy-drinking style, ripely scented, with satisfying depth of tropical-fruit flavours, crisp and lively, and a well-rounded finish.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The 2008 vintage was grown in the inland, elevated Colefield and Kinross vineyards. Fresh, crisp and flavoursome, it's a lively, slightly nettley style with a sliver of sweetness balanced by appetising acidity, and good vigour and aromatic intensity.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
Morton's Hawke's Bay wine is more restrained than the classic Marlborough model, but lively, with satisfying flavour depth. The 2005 vintage is typical - smooth, with tropical-fruit flavours and a hint of honey. It's a distinctly regional style, offering very easy drinking.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Morton's 'white label' wine was traditionally a slightly off-dry style, but the 2002 vintage is fully dry. Full-bodied (13.5 per cent alcohol) and ripe-tasting, it shows very good depth of melon/lime flavours and good acid balance. It's a more restrained style than the classic Marlborough model, but crisp, dry and lively, with satisfying flavour depth. The 2003, grown at two elevated sites, is fresh and full-flavoured, with melon and capsicum characters, lively and tangy

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Morton's 'white label' wine is stop-fermented to retain a whisker of sweetness. Light lemon/green, with good body, the 1999 vintage is fresh, lively and clearly herbaceous, although not intense, with ripe, delicate flavours of melons and limes. The 2000, tasted from the tank, showed good weight and crisp, ripe fruit characters.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Morton's "white label" wine is stop-fermented to retain a whisker of sweetness. One of the livelier Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blancs of the vintage, the 1997 is ready now, with good varietal punch, pleasing depth of melon and lime-like flavours and a smooth finish. The 1998 vintage is fresh, full and limey; not concentrated but attractive, with lively acidity.
