Coopers Creek Limeworks Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Cracka Review

Appearance: This vineyard always has a bit of colour: Pale gold in the glass at bottling, but will slowly deepen with time.

Nose: Profound! A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak.

Palate: Powerful! This is a big, rich Chardonnay. It has weight, sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length.

Food: The oak ageing make this wine an excellent match with full flavoured rich dishes, in particular poultry, pork, salmon and crayfish.

Cellaring: Already approachable, but will cellar happily into the medium term in a cool environment.

Alcohol: 14%

Coopers Creek Limeworks Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
New Zealand is proving its credentials with chardonnay all the way from Kumeu in the north to Central Otago in the south, and here’s proof that the celebrated red wine turf of Hawke’s Bay is very much in the race. This barrel fermented style from the heart of limestone hill country delivery impressively soft and approachable white peach and pear fruit with notes of nutmeg. A creamy, buttery suppleness pulls into a softly textural finish of considerable persistence.
