Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
A consistently rich, long-lived wine with bone-dry flavours. The 2004 vintage is a classic dry style. Harvested at 21.4 brix from very low-yielding vines (3.75 tonnes/hectare), it is finely balanced, with minerally, toasty and complex flavours, building to a rich, rounded finish.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
A consistently powerful wine with mouthfilling body and deep, bone-dry flavours. The 2003 vintage is outstanding. Bright, youthful lemon/green in hue, it possesses an enticingly fragrant, citrusy, minerally, toasty bouquet. Dry but not austere, it is ripe and highly concentrated, crisp and long. It should mature well for a decade; open 2007 onwards.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
A consistently powerful wine, with mouthfilling body and deep flavour. In a vertical tasting of the 1993 to 2001 vintages, staged in late 2001, the highlight was the 1998 - very generous, with tropical fruit and toast flavours, dry and rich. The pale 2001 is still very youthful. Fresh and tight, with strong lemony, appley flavours and lively acidity, it needs time to soften; open 2004+.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
A consistently powerful wine, with mouthfilling body and rich flavour. Fresh and lively, with an intense bouquet of lemons and limes, the full-bodied 1998 vintage is a concentrated wine with very ripe, almost tropical fruit characters, firm acidity and a rich finish. It's already full of character, and should mature well.
