What’s in the glass tonight October 18th

Coopers Creek SR Chard 2013

Coopers Creek Chardonnay Limited Release Gisborne 2013

L’s friend R came around for a wine with us, and brought this welcome bottle. I have really liked the odd glass of their top Swamp Reserve Chardonnay in the past, so was keen to record my impressions of this wine while I knocked up a meal of the finest home-made mix-tape Margherita pizzas this side of Italy…

Light gold. 13.5%.

Vanilla nose, elegant and aromatic. Citrus fruits, orange blossom.

Golden fruits to taste, with oak and vanilla, almonds and cashews and oatmeal. Balanced acidity. Some secondary characters.

Lovely. 4
