Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
A single-vineyard Marlborough wine, the 2002 vintage was tasted prior to bottling (and so not rated). Boldly coloured, it has mouthfilling body and strong, ripe, plum and cherry flavours, very fresh and vibrant

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The 1999 vintage is a mouthfilling wine with a fresh, raspberryish fragrance, firm raspberry and spice flavours, balanced oak and a lingering finish. The 2000, grown at the Rivendell vineyard in Marlborough, is a fresh, plummy, berryish wine, not highly complex but ripe and smooth, with drink-young charm.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Past vintages have lacked consistency, but the 1998 is impressive, with warm, ripe fruit characters, oak complexity and very good depth of berry/spice flavours. Verging on four-star quality, the 1999 vintage was grown in Marlborough and French oak-aged. It's a mouthfilling wine, worth cellaring. Full-coloured, with a fresh, raspberryish fragrance, it's firmly structured, with raspberry and spice flavours, balanced oak and a lingering finish.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Past vintages have lacked consistency, but the 1998 is impressive. A blend of Canterbury (estate-grown, West Melton) and Marlborough (Rivendell vineyard) fruit, French oak-aged, it's an elegant wine with full, ruby colour and fresh, berryish, slightly smoky aromas. The palate shows warm, ripe fruit characters, oak complexity and very good depth of berry/spice flavours. Drink 2000+.
