Coopers Creek was established by Andrew and Cynthia Hendry in 1980 with the aim of producing the very highest quality wines, principally in dry styles and reflecting New Zealand’s outstanding cool climate viticultural conditions. The Coopers Creek label first appeared in 1982, since when they have continued to develop their vineyards, extend the range, and advance their reputation as one of the best performing and most eclectic medium-sized New Zealand wineries.

Tasting Notes

This wine demonstrates the essence of Hawkes Bay Syrah: masses of black fruits, a touch of pepper, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak. Beautifully structured palate, medium to full bodied with masses of mid-palate fruit and a long finish.

This Select Vineyards Syrah comes from a new block planted by Coopers Creek in a steep, north-facing limestone amphitheatre. The ripest fruit from the top of the hill is selected for this bottling. The small amount of Viognier also came from the same block.
