A classy, barrel fermented Chardonnay at a crazy discount! The Plainsman is one of Cooper's Creek's quality "SV" or select vineyard labels, and is made much like the famous Limeworks except with a different selection of fruit. With vanilla-infused citrus and plenty of oak character, the Plainsman is a classy and classic style for a very cheap price.

Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

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

"A delightful chardonnay; the beautifully fragrant bouquet shows white nectarine, fig, vanilla and nougat characters with subtle hazelnut complexity. It is wonderfully weighted and fleshy on the palate, delivering plenty of delectable fruit flavours and silky texture, finishing superbly long and smooth. At its best: now to 2020. Feb 2018."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 vintage)

"Attractive, supple chardonnay with delicate fruit (peach, melon and nectarine) flavours flattered by the artful addition of nutty oak and bready yeast lees characters. The wine has a pleasing silken texture and a lingering finish. Good now but no rush 7/3/2016."
