Almost water white in the glass with a mйlange of gooseberry, passion fruit and nectarine pulp on the nose that is backed by the slightest suggestion of fresh leafy herbs. The palate is lithe, with a great concentration to lime juice, freshly cut grass and lemon blossom nuance. A hint of guava richness fleshes out the clay notes of the dazzling finish.

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.
