Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
At its best, this Martinborough wine is chock-full of flavour. The 2000 vintage is less scented and concentrated than usual, offering good depth of lemon/lime flavours, slightly sweet and crisp, but lacking the intensity of this label at its best. There is no 2001. The 2002 is a fresh, tight, slightly sweet wine with rich, ripe citrus and passionfruit characters showing good intensity. Open mid-2003+.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
This Martinborough wine is typically chock full of flavour in an invigorating, slightly sweet style. Beautifully fresh and delicate, the 1998 vintage was harvested in early May, with no Botrytis, and stop-fermented at 20 grams/litre of sugar (making it a medium style). The attractively scented, ripe fruit aromas lead into a fresh, vivacious wine with crisp acidity enlivening its strong, ripe lemon/lime flavours. In its infancy, the 1999 showed a fresh, lifted, floral bouquet, leading into a tight, medium-bodied wine with firm acidity and strong lemon/lime flavours. It needs time; open 2001. (There is also an excellent, slightly sweeter St Vincent Reserve Riesling 1999 with fine sugar/acid balance and very fresh and tangy, concentrated flavours.)
