Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage is a youthful, ruby-hued Alexandra, Central Otago red with earthy, herbal, forest-floor notes on the nose. It's a middleweight style, savoury and warm, with oak complexity, firm tannins and good length.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2000 is an aromatic, mouthfilling Alexandra, Central Otago red with rich colour and generous raspberry, plum and spice flavours. On a lower plane, the 2001 is light and berryish, with a crisp, green-edged finish.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
French oak-aged and bottled without filtering, the 2000 is a mouthfilling Alexandra, Central Otago wine with rich, youthful colour and fresh, strong raspberry, plum and spice flavours. Aromatic, with good varietal character and a slightly crisp finish, it's a generous wine, worth cellaring.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium purple-red; the bouquet is complex and stylish, with gamey, foresty overtones to the fruit. The palate picks up the pace, with plenty of ripe plum fruit, offering substance and style, and with good length.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage of this Alexandra red is richly coloured, with strong cherry and spice flavours, warm, nutty and complex. However, the 1999 is much lighter, with fresh plum/herbal flavours of moderate depth.
