2014 Coopers Creek SV Gimblett Gravels Cabernet
Merlot and Malbec
Founded in 1980 by Andrew and Cynthia Hendry when the New Zealand wine industry was small and relatively unknown, Coopers Creek Vineyard has grown and matured over three decades into a top class winery with a strong international presence. It continues to innovate, particularly with new wine styles, introducing and pioneering promising new grape varieties that are ideal for cool climate regions. Viognier, Albariño, Arneis, Grüner Veltliner, Marsanne and Montepulciano are new varieties for New Zealand, but heading for stardom. Coopers Creek is satisfying a growing demand for these stylish varieties in addition to its longstanding pedigree with Chardonnay, Syrah and Bordeaux reds.
What The Critics Say
4.5 Stars Michael Cooper
"Offering fine value, the 2014 vintage (4.5*) was grown in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for 11 months in French oak casks (33 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, with generous, youthful, well-ripened blackcurrant and plum flavours, a hint of liquorice, and good tannin backbone. Already drinking well, it also shows excellent vigour and potential."
91/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Attractive Gimblett Gravels cabernet sauvignon showing typical bright cedar, cassis and subtle herb varietal flavours. A structure of fine tannins suggests cellaring potential, although the wine is fairly accessible now. Good value at this price 1/6/2017."
