Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The 2007 lees-aged for a year in French oak barriques, is a moderately complex wine, fleshy, flavoursome and distinctly buttery. The 2008 vintage is lemony and toasty, with a soft, slightly buttery finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The latest vintages of this moderately priced wine are the best. The 2002 is full-bodied and buttery-smooth, with good depth of fresh, citrusy flavour and a soft, creamy mouthfeel.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Most vintages of this wine have been light, with crisp, appley flavours. The 2000 is one of the best yet. Smooth and creamy, it was mostly handled in tanks, but 20 per cent of the blend was fermented in new French oak casks and 55 per cent went through malolactic fermentation. Forward in its appeal, it's a mouthfilling, buttery, rounded wine with a strong 'malo' influence, lemon/apple fruit characters and a soft, buttery, fractionally off-dry finish.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Most vintages of this wine have been light, with crisp, appley flavours, clean and lively. The 1998 was 20 per cent French oak-aged, and 55 per cent of the blend went through a softening malolactic fermentation. It's a solid, uncomplicated wine in a fruit-driven style, full-bodied, crisp and lemony.
