A great discount on classic Chardonnay. It is broad and powerful but also has a chalky freshness from the limestone in the name (it is grown next to Webster's limeworks in Hawkes Bay). This offering from Cooper's Creek is becoming a quiet legend and consistently delivers concentration and quality for a very reasonable price. 'Fat' and open with a slightly oily palate, it is lifted by minerality and driven by balanced acidity...no wonder our customers love it!

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 Bob Campbell MW

"Reasonably weighty chardonnay with peach, chalky-mineral, lime zest and subtle spicy oak flavours. A smooth-textured wine, with a vibrant thread of thrilling acidity promoting a mouth-cleansing finish. Excellent value 28 AUG 2019." Drink 2019 - 2024

"If you like toasty, creamy, full-flavoured Chardonnays, try this. Grown in the Havelock North hills, the 2018 vintage (4*) was fermented and matured for 10 months in American oak casks (30 per cent new), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Fragrant and full-bodied, it has generous stone-fruit flavours, strongly seasoned with toasty oak, and good complexity."
