Coopers Creek Reserve Gisborne NZ Chardonnay 2007
Copyright © 2013 Bob Campbell, Master of Wine. Republishing Info.
Mellow, fleshy Chardonnay thatâ€™s a mix of charming Gisborne fruit and clever winemaking influence. The wine has subtle peachy fruit, spicy oak, sizzled butter and nutty yeast lees characters. The texture is fine-grained and the finish bone-dry.
Tasted: Apr 2009 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $25 (~USD $21)
