Coopers Creek Limeworks Chardonnay 2019
- Hawke's Bay
Hawkes 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 immensely 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. If you love powerful, mouth-filling and smooth chardonnay, then this one’s for you.
“Wonderfully composed and stylish, the wine shows nectarine, fig, vanilla and roasted cashew notes on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate displaying excellent weight and depth. It’s richly textured and complex with an impressively long delectable finish. At its best: now to 2025.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

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.
