Coopers Gold 2016 375ml

Super sweet fruit, rich, mouth filling and long on the finish.
Winemakers Notes
In 2016 we targeted Delwyn and Doug Bell’s Clone 548 Chardonnay to make our Coopers Gold. The fruit was in beautiful condition and picked ripe. We then freeze concentrated a portion of the juice up to almost 30 Brix. Fermentation was in tank and we stopped the ferment when the acid/sugar/alcohol balance seemed correct. This has given us a residual sugar of just over 100g/L. We made a wine in this style in 2004 and this wine surprised and delighted us by aging gracefully for 10 years. We are hopeful that our 2016 version will behave in a similar fashion!

 
Analysis
Alc 10.5%
Acidity 7.8g/L
Res sugar 100g/L
pH 3.55

Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale gold in the glass. Will deepen up with age.
Bouquet: Peachy-ripe Gisborne chardonnay, along with honey, vanilla and stone-fruit overtones.
Palate: Super sweet, rich, mouth filling and long.
 
Cellaring
As with most dessert wines Coopers Gold will gain further complexity with careful cellaring.

Food Matches
Probably best suited to rich, luscious desserts. A dessert, which included stone fruits, vanilla and honey would certainly match the flavours and aromas. Try Crème Brulee!

Suggested Wine List Description
Super sweet fruit, rich, mouth filling and long on the finish.
