Michael Cooper Wines gives Eventide 4 Star Award

According to his website, Michael Cooper is New Zealand’s most acclaimed wine writer, with 44 books and several major literary awards to his credit, including the Montana Medal for the supreme work of non-fiction at the 2003 Montana New Zealand Book Awards for the first edition of his magnum opus, Wine Atlas of New Zealand.  In the 2004 New Year Honours, Michael was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to wine writing.

So when Michael reviewed our Eventide 2018 vintage, we were delighted and pleased to find out that we had been given a 4 star rating – pretty awesome for a new wine and the review was also very encouraging and complimentary.

Michael Cooper 4 Star Award

“The distinctive 2018 vintage ( 4 stars ****) is based principally on Syrah, blended with minor portions of Petit Verdot and Tannat.  Full-coloured, it is vibrantly fruity and smooth, with strong, youthful plum and spice flavours, a hint of tamarillo, a gentle seasoning of oak, and plenty of drink-young appeal.”
