James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Ripe, peachy fruit with plenty of depth; again controlled oak, but I prefer the Almond Grove.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Restrained, lightly oaked aromas of melon and lemon rind, peach and banana precede a soft and surprisingly elegant palate. There's plenty of texture, but refreshingly crisp acids neatly punctuate the wine's generous and vibrant peach/apple flavours.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; melon fruit on the bouquet is offset by a touch of citrus and lemony oak, the palate moving up a gear, with attractive, squeaky mouthfeel, and the barrel-ferment oak inputs more positive, but without threatening. Pleasing melon and nectarine fruit occupy the mid-palate.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet has moderately ripe peach supported by solid oak inputs; overall, plenty of aroma and flavour, but slightly hard acid on the finish disrupts the palate. Disappointing after the '98.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; discreet melon fruit with hints of citrus and minimal and a deft touch of oak lead into an elegant, unforced palate with similar citrus and melon fruit together with subtle oak.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light green-yellow; the bouquet is fresh, smooth, relatively undeveloped with light melon fruit and subtle oak. The palate is a logical corollary, elegant and understated; the question is whether it will build character with time in bottle, or whether, in the final analysis, it lacks fruit intensity.
