Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Named after a rock in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf, the characterful 2006 vintage is a Waiheke Island red, matured for 10 months in American oak casks. Full of character, it is richly coloured, weighty and robust (14.5 per cent alcohol), with very ripe liquorice, spice and plum flavours, firm and highly concentrated.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Named after a rock in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf, the 2001 vintage is a characterful Waiheke Island red, French oak-aged for a year. Fullish but not deep in colour, with a mellow, slightly earthy, spicy and nutty bouquet, it lacks real richness but shows some complexity, with a firm finish. Drink 2004-05.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Syrah could well have a future on Waiheke Island. The 1999 vintage is mouthfilling and warm, with excellent depth of blackcurrant and spice flavours, balanced tannins and good length. The 2000, matured for a year in French oak casks (one-third new), is distinctly peppery on the nose and palate, with firm, spicy flavours showing very good structure and depth
