Four Stars -  Winestate Magazine, November 2019

Michael Cooper
“Fresh, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, this Havelock North wine was hand-picked and barrel-fermented. It has very good vigour and depth of stonefruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of biscuity oak adding complexity, balanced acidity and some cellaring potential; best drinking mid-2020+” M Cooper

We are big fans of this hard to say varietal...  VEE...ON....YAY! Big, rich and dry. Coopers Creek make a damned fine example.

Winemakers note
"Very pale in the glass at bottling, but we expect that this wine will pick up pale gold tints with time. Massive tears on the glass indicate a wine of considerable body and richness.
Bouquet: Very typical Viognier aromas of peach and apricot blossom and ripe stonefruit. Along with this there is a degree of complexity that we seldom see in New Zealand wines. We use the wines of Condrieu as our benchmark for this variety and aromatically this wine is trending in that direction.
Palate: This is a big rich wine. Like all good Viognier, the palate is very broad and very long. There is a strong core of fruit sweetness running all the way through the wine."
