Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard red is estate-grown and hand-picked in the Brancott Valley, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new in 2008). The 2009 vintage is the best yet. The bouquet is highly scented; the palate is concentrated, sweet-fruited and savoury, with rich, vibrant plum and spice flavours, seasoned with oak, a hint of herbs, and good tannin support. It's a complex style, for drinking now or cellaring.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard red is estate-grown and hand-picked in the Brancott Valley and matured in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). The youthful 2007 vintage is weighty, rich and packed with fruit. Mouthfilling and vibrant, it has strong flavours of fresh, ripe cherries and plums, finely integrated oak and good tannin support. Best drinking mid-2010+.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2003 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Omaka Valley and matured in French oak barriques (60 per cent new). Full and youthful in colour, it offers plum and red-berry aromas and flavours in an attractively fresh and vibrantly fruity, but not intense, style.
