Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage is a single-vineyard Marlborough wine, harvested at 23 brix and fermented to a medium-dry style (8 grams/litre of residual sugar). It's a ripe-tasting wine with very good intensity of lemon, lime and passionfruit flavours and toasty, bottle-aged characters emerging.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
All lightness and delicacy, with great freshness and vivacity, the 2000 vintage is a very stylish wine. Grown in the Bowers vineyard, it was hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Pale lemon/green, it is richly flavoured, with intense lemon/lime characters, softness and delicacy through the palate and a crisp, lingering, slightly sweet finish. Open now onwards.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The big, ripely flavoured, debut 1998 vintage needs time to unfold its full potential. An almost bone-dry style, it's pale green, fresh, lively and limey, with pure, incisive flavours and a zingy, slightly flinty, lasting finish. Still youthful, it's a powerful wine that should open out really well during 2000.
