Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
The 2011 vintage was grown in the Wairau Valley and made in a medium-dry style (8 grams/litre of residual sugar). Very fresh and tight, it has good depth and delicacy of youthful lemon, lime and slight spice flavours, threaded with lively acidity. Open mid-2012+.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Grown in the Wairau Valley, the 2004 vintage is a medium style (15 grams/litre of residual sugar). Pale and light-bodied (11 per cent alcohol), with lemony, appley flavours, it's an easy-drinking style, but lacks a bit of freshness and richness.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Grown in the Rapaura district, the 2002 vintage is full-bodied and juicy, with a fresh, floral bouquet, ripe, appley flavours showing some concentration and a slightly sweet (9.5 grams/litre of sugar), crisp and lively finish.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage offers fine value. Ripely scented and flavoured, with good depth and vigour, it's a full-bodied style with fairly rich citrus/tropical flavours, fresh and lively, and a splash of sweetness giving an easy-drinking appeal. The powerful 1999 is a drier style than the 1998, with a fresh, floral, limey bouquet, mouthfilling body, good concentration of lemon/lime flavour and a crisp, tight finish. Open 2001. Again, top value.
