Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the northern outskirts of Christchurch, the 2004 vintage is a tank-fermented wine with distinctly spicy, almost Gewurztraminer-like aromas and flavours. Fresh, crisp and lively, it's well-balanced for early drinking, with gentle sweetness (13 grams/litre of residual sugar), pear and lychees characters and good body.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Estate-grown on the northern outskirts of Christchurch, the 2002 vintage shows only-moderate varietal character. A medium-bodied style, it is pale and crisp, with strongly spiced flavours and a slightly sweet finish.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Estate-grown north of Christchurch, the 2001 vintage is faintly pink-hued, fresh, crisp and slightly sweet. It's a medium to full-bodied wine with reasonable depth of peach, pear and spice flavours, but solid rather than exciting.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Faintly pink, with a floral nose, the 1998 vintage was 20 per cent barrel-fermented and the final blend was fully French oak-matured for eight months. Full-bodied and crisp, with solid depth of peach, lemon and spice flavours, it shows gentle tannins and a whisker of sweetness on the finish.
