Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Pale, with minerally aromas, the 2006 vintage is an off-dry wine (5 grams/litre of residual sugar) with tight, lemony, appley flavours, showing excellent depth. Distinctly cool-climate, it carries the dry style well.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
A dryish style with pure lemon/lime flavours, the 2007 vintage shows good texture and length, with a touch of bottle-aged toastiness. Full-bodied, tight and immaculate, it's maturing well. (In a vertical tasting of the 2002-2006 vintages, held in late 2008, the star was the 2004 - generous, complex and lovely now.) The 2005 still on sale, is maturing solidly, with bright, light lemon/green colour, strong, lemony, slightly toasty flavours and a dry finish (4 grams/litre of residual sugar).

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Likely to age well, the 2003 vintage was hand-picked in three vineyards around Lake Dunstan in the Cromwell Basin, and cool-fermented to a dry style (4 grams/litre of residual sugar). It's an attractive wine, fresh and well-balanced, with good depth of citrusy, limey flavour and an appetisingly crisp, lingering finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage was fermented to a dryish style (6 grams/litre of sugar). Pale lemon/green, it is tight and youthful, with fresh, lemony, limey, slighdy spicy flavours threaded with crisp acidity and very good depth. It needs more time; open mid-2004+.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage was grown in the Cromwell Basin and fermented to a dryish style (five grams/litre of sugar). Fragrant and weighty, it's a tightly structured wine with good intensity of lemony, spicy flavour, firm acidity and a long, limey, green-edged finish.
Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines
Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Light lemon/green, the 1998 vintage is an impressively concentrated and lively wine with fresh, tangy lemon/lime flavours and steely acidity. Slighty sweet, punchy and long. (Available through mail-order wine clubs.)
