Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
In a vertical tasting of the 2006-2010 vintages, held in April 2011, the rich, toasty 2007 was the best for current enjoyment. The 2010 is still a baby, but shows excellent vigour and intensity of fresh, racy, lemon/lime flavours, off-dry, crisp and long.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The delicious 2003 vintage is an attractively scented wine with rich flavour and a crisp, slightly sweet, persistent finish. It's a very harmonious wine with a lovely texture. The 2004 is a medium style (16 grams/litre of residual sugar) with tangy, ripe flavours, hints of passionfruit, and good vigour and harmony.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage is a high-acid, slightly tart wine but offers good depth of citrusy, limey flavours. Delightful in its infancy, the slightly sweet 2002 is crisp and intense, with rich, ripe tropical-fruit and honey flavours, very concentrated and harmonious. The 2003 scored a silver medal at the 2003 Liquorland Top 100 International Wine Competition

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
A great buy from a much underrated producer. Slightly Germanic, the 1997 vintage is a yellow-hued wine with a lifted, minerally, toasty bouquet. The palate is firm and dryish, with excellent depth of beeswax, citrus and toast characters.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
The 1996 vintage is a well-made wine, light yellow, with a pungent, limey bouquet. Full-bodied, slightly sweet and lively, with appetising acidity and strong lemon/lime flavours, it is a well-balanced, tightly structured wine with good varietal character and should age well. Fine value.
