Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
I prefer the unoaked 2004 vintage to its stablemate (above). Grown at Mahurangi, near Matakana, it's a slightly austere but concentrated wine, full-bodied and firm, with a minerally bouquet and tight, lemony, appley, peachy flavours that show good richness. Fresh, vibrant, crisp and lingering, it should age well.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
This Mahurangi producer (just south of Warkworth, north of Auckland) produces immaculate, sophisticated Chardonnays. The 2000 vintage was estate-grown and tank-fermented, then two-thirds of the blend was aged in old oak casks. Full-bodied, it offers ripe fruit characters of lemons and peaches, a gentle wood influence, finely balanced acidity and good depth. There was no 2001, but the label returns from 2002.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
This Mahurangi producer (just south of Warkworth, north of Auckland) produces immaculate, sophisticated Chardonnays. The lightly oaked (10 per cent barrel-fermented) 1998 vintage offers fresh, strong melon/citrus flavours in a mouthfilling, fruit-driven style with a touch of butteriness and good acid spine.
