Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
A bargain. The 2010 vintage is punchy and vibrant, with a floral bouquet, strong, citrusy, limey flavours and a fresh, dryish, crisp finish that lingers well.

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
A consistently excellent wine, priced sharply. The 2006 vintage is very floral and lively, with fresh, crisp citrus and passionfruit flavours, slight sweetness (14 grams/litre of residual sugar) and a lengthy finish. The 2005 is a finely balanced, dry style, lemony and minerally.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
A consistently excellent wine, sharply priced. The 2004 vintage is generous and slightly sweet, with a minerally streak on the nose and rich, ripe, citrusy flavours, firm and persistent.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Offering fine value, the 2003 vintage is a floral, finely balanced wine in a dryish style (6 grams/litre of residual sugar). It's a crisp wine with good weight and pure, incisive lemon/lime flavours, fresh and lingering.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage is clearly the best yet. Light lemon/green, with strong, ripe tropical fruit aromas, it's weighty and richly flavoured, with lemon, lime and passionfruit characters, fractional sweetness and invigorating acidity. An impressively concentrated wine, it's already delicious.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
The 1995 vintage, grown on the Waimea Plains, is a decent debut, with a scented, floral bouquet, light body and good depth of citrusy, slightly limey, crisp and lively flavour, with along, slightly sweet finish. The fresh, lively '96 is still tight and youthful, with slightly unripe aromas, but the palate offers good depth of crisp, slightly sweet, appley flavour.
