Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Still very youthful, the 2011 vintage is medium-bodied, with fresh lemon, lime and spice flavours, a hint of passionfruit and gentle sweetness balanced by lively acidity. Open mid-2012+.

Matua Valley's Riesling is consistently attractive. The 2002 vintage is garden-fresh, with strong, vibrant lemon/time flavours and a slightly sweet (11 grams/litre of residual sugar), mouth-wateringly crisp finish

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Matua Valley's Riesling is consistently attractive: dryish, with fresh, strong flavour and great drinkability. The 2001 vintage is a fragrant, dry style (four grams/litre of sugar) with very good depth of lemony, limey flavour and a racy finish.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Matua Valley's Riesling is consistently attractive: an off-dry style with strong fruit flavours, tense underlying acidity and great drinkability. The 1998 vintage is one of the best yet. Fresh, full and immaculate, with rich lemon/lime flavours, it's a lively wine, already delicious. Attractively scented and impressively weight)', it's concentrated, zingy and poised.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
Matua Valley's Riesling is consistently attractive: an off-dry style with strong fruit flavours, tense underlying acidity and great drinkability. The '95 is a crisp and limey wine with a green-edged, dryish, rather tart finish. The 1996 is a very solid wine, although it lacks the intensity of some past vintages. Full-bodied, with quite good depth of juicy, citrusy flavour, a splash of sweetness and balanced acidity, it's worth keeping another year or so to open out.
