Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Made in a drink-young style, the 2009 vintage is a light wine with straightforward, fresh, lemony, appley flavours.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
This skilfully made wine is a consistently good buy. Barrel-fermented and oak-aged for seven months, the fleshy, citrusy 2004 vintage shows lovely balance and depth, with finely integrated French and American oak in an elegant style with good intensity.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Barrel-fermented, with full malolactic fermentation, the 2003 vintage is a medium-weight wine with lemony, appley fruit characters and a toasty, creamy influence. Fresh and crisp, with plenty of flavour, it offers good value.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Made with 'a light touch of oak', the 2002 vintage is more interesting than many of the region's Chardonnays, with some nutty, minerally characters surrounding its core of ripe, citrusy fruit. Slightly creamy and nutty, with good body and flavour depth, it offers very satisfying drinking from now onwards.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Made with 'a light touch of new oak', the 2000 is a fairly simple but attractive wine, fresh, crisp, delicate and vibrant, with smooth, ripe peach/melon flavours and strong drink-young appeal. The 2001 vintage is similar. The bouquet is citrusy, slightly biscuity and buttery; the palate is fresh, lively and crisp, with good depth of peach and grapefruit flavours.
