Coopers Creek Limeworks Chardonnay 2018
- Hawke's Bay
Hawke’s Bay is known for bigger, richer chardy. Using American oak and malolactic fermentation also makes for bigger, richer chardy. So it is absolutely no surprise that if you put Hawkes Bay chardy into American oak to go through malolactic fermentation, you are going to end up with an immensly big and rich chardy. And that’s just what the winemaker at Coopers Creek did. We’re talking vanilla, cream, lemon, hazelnut and grapefruit with a bit of cedary oak in the background. So if you want your chardy quite lean and austere, just hit the ‘back’ button. But if you love powerful, mouth-filling and smooth chardonnay, then hit that ‘buy’ button. This one’s for you.
“A wonderfully styled chardonnay, the fragrant bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, baked fig, vanilla pod and cedar characters, followed by a concentrated palate that's creamy and lingering. The wine offers terrific fruit purity together with seductive oak complexity, making it hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2024.”

Hawke's Bay is New Zealand's oldest wine region, with climate similar to Bordeaux and Sancerre in France. It's no surprise then that their best wines happen to be Cabernet blends and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Syrah. Unfortunately, most of this gets slurped up within NZ, and we have to bang down doors to get some over to Australia. Lucky for you mofos, we're pretty good at this.
