Supreme discount on a classy and refreshing Albarino -- from New Zealand's first producer of this promising Spanish variety. Delicate tree fruits with almond and spice nuance make a sophisticated nose and dry palate, with a nice palate weight driven by gently mineral acidity. Classic and expertly made, this is extreme value at this price!

Overview

Grape

Albarino

Its Origins

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

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Elegant and pristine, the inviting bouquet shows white stone fruit, lemon peel, apple blossom and almond characters. The palate is juicy and focused with excellent purity and fine texture, wonderfully framed by bright acidity, finishing persistent and attractive. Always reliable, always stylish. At its best: now to 2019. $23.00. April 2017." Drink 2017 - 2019

4 Stars Michael Cooper

"The refreshing 2016 vintage (4*) was hand-harvested in the Bell Vineyard and tank-fermented. Crisp and lively, it's a finely balanced, dry wine (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), with strong, ripe, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours and an appealingly floral bouquet." Drink 2017 - 2018
