A serious discount on a Champion Wine and quiet legend of Hawkes Bay. This was serious value even before we discounted it from a price of $25+, then it beat out all the expensive competition to win Best Syrah at Bragato 2017! The Chalk Ridge name says it all, grown on one of Hawkes Bay's little-known but exceptional landscapes, a steep amphitheatre of chalk soils just outside Havelock North. Here the sheltered, sun-kissed and free draining lime produces an elegant Syrah with perfect ripeness along with real brightness and expression. A bright and aromatic Syrah collected by those in the know, this trophy winner is stunning value.

Overview

Grape

Syrah

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 Bob Campbell MW

"Lush, rich and quite elegant syrah with ripe plum, floral, spicy oak and a subtle mineral thread. A smooth-textured red with an impressively lengthy finish. Good varietal definition. Offers great value at this price." (priced given, $28) Drink 2018 - 2023

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"Priced right, the 2016 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard red, deeply coloured, full-bodied and well structured. It has fresh, concentrated plum and spice flavours, a hint of black pepper, fine-grained tannins and impressive complexity. Open 2021+." (price given, $28) Drink 2018 - 2022
