Cooper’s Creek Bell Ringer Albarinho

Description

New Zealand’s first Albariño is an exuberant, zesty affair, brimming with white peach and melon fruit, reined in by the grape’s typical citrus/ mineral character. This wine is truly delicious and so interesting. Fruit development is fantastic and the underlying tropical notes are so moreish. Top quality!

Extra Notes

Cooper's 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.

Region

Gisborne

The Gisborne wine region lies on the north-eastern corner of the North Island, in New Zealand. It is bordered by Hawke’s Bay and Waikato wine regions. When Captain James Cook first arrived in New Zealand, he disembarked in Gisborne, but the first European settlement only happened during the 1850s. The Gisborne wine region is characterized by a mix of individual entrepreneurs that often have boutique wineries and large wineries.
