2017 Coopers Creek SV Chalk Ridge Hawkes Bay Syrah

91 Points Bob Campbell MW
In stock
A serious discount on a quiet legend of Hawkes Bay. This was serious value even before we discounted it from $25+...then the 2015 vintage beat out 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, formed by 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, as well as real brightness and age-worthy expression. A bright and aromatic Syrah collected by those in the know, this is stunning value.

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

91/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Fine-boned syrah with floral, pepper, chalk, mineral and red fruit flavours. A supple wine with purity and restrained power, supported by a backbone of fine tannins that provide interesting cellaring prospects. 16 APR 2019." Drink 2019 - 2023

4 Stars Michael Cooper

"Drinking well now, but still youthful, the 2017 vintage (4*) has fresh, peppery aromas, leading into a mouthfilling, supple wine with vibrant plum and black-pepper flavours, a hint of liquorice, and very good depth." (Rated "Value Plus" at $28)
