4 STARS – Michael Cooper, www.michaelcooper.co.nz
‘Crafted with food in mind’, the 2017 vintage (4*) is aimed mostly at the restaurant trade. Tank-fermented and lees-aged ‘with oak contact’, it is a pale lemon/green, full-bodied, vibrant wine, sweet-fruited and slightly creamy, with generous stonefruit flavours, balanced acidity and toasty notes adding depth and complexity.”
