Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Grown at Patutahi, the 2009 vintage is a slightly sweet style with strong, ripe flavours of stone-fruit and spice.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
Grown at Patutahi, Allied Domecq's wine is typically rich and flavour-packed, with loads of varietal character. The 2004 is excellent. Light yellow, with a lifted, spicy, perfumed bouquet, it's a smooth, generous wine with soft, rich lychees and spice flavours, already delicious, and a slightly sweet (12 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. The fresh, lively 2005 vintage has a spicy bouquet and flavours, citrusy, delicate and smooth, with good varietal character.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Grown at Patutahi, Montana's wine is consistently rich and flavour-packed, with loads of varietal character. The 2002 vintage was harvested at a ripe 23 box and the juice was given brief skin contact to increase aroma and flavour extraction. Stop-fermented in a slightly sweet style, it is perfumed and spicy on the nose, with mouthfilling body (13.5 per cent alcohol) and rich flavours of lychees, spice, ginger and tropical fruits. Very harmonious and soft, it's already delicious.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Grown at Patutahi, Montana's wine is consistently rich and flavour-packed, with loads of varietal character. The 1998 vintage is excellent. Light yellow, it's a perfumed wine with good weight, slight sweetness and rich, lingering, lemony, gingery flavour. The strongly varietal 1999 is fresh, floral and finely balanced, with concentrated, slightly sweet, lemony, spicy flavours.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
The 1995 vintage, grown by Montana in Hawke's Bay, is a golden, very full-flavoured wine with clean Botrylis influence and quite rich, complex flavours. The '96 was grown at Patutahi in Gisborne. Produced in a slightly sweet style, this is a soft, rich wine with a well-spiced fragrance intensity of gingerbread-evoking flavour, and a well rounded lingering finish. Already very enjoyable. The 97, tasted prior to bottling, looked good strongly aromatic and ripe, with spicy, gingery flavours, lively acidity and a long finish.
