Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide to NZ Wines 2007

Author Michael Cooper, leading authority on NZ wine



Takatu Matakana Pinot Gris 2006


... a sophisticated wine... a fleshy wine, it is concentrated... a long, bone-dry finish

Takatu Matakana Merlot/Franc/Malbec 2005

... fermented with indigenous yeasts... concentrated and finely structured... unusually complex... highly reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux.
