2019 Joshua Cooper Cope-Williams Chardonnay

Macedon Ranges, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$64.99 Bottle
  • ABV 12.5%
  • Closure: Diam Cork

Described by wine commentator Mike Bennie as "one of Australia’s brightest young winemakers”, Joshua Cooper is steadily forging a reputation for thoughtful, elegant, and confident wines from grapes grown in Macedon and surrounds. His Cope-Williams Chardonnay comes from a vineayrd on a flat just across the gully from the well known Doug’s Vineyard, and was planted in 1982 at 490m altitude on deep, free draining red basalt loam. The wine sees one year in oak on full lees, no stirring, and no racking, then transferred to stainless steel with all the fine lees for a further 6 months elevage. Before racking and bottling, unfined and unfiltered. The only addition to the wine is a small dose of sulphur the week before bottling.

Other reviews...
A sleeper vineyard in the Macedon Ranges that seems to have really started performing, or hitting a spotlight, in the last few years. Here’s a wine we’ll be talking about. More of the same seen from 2018 release, but perhaps more agile and flighty, in the best possible sense.

This is insanely delicious. It wins the millionth customer award where streamers and confetti fall from the ceiling. It’s the texture of Persian fairy floss, ok, that’s obscure, but it feels glassy, crisp, lacy at once, and delivers this high tensile crunch like the rim of a Zalto glass bitten off in your teeth. The flavours are saline, nutty, some green apple, a touch of natural yoghurt, but savouriness is the forte and acidity is the trump card. Boil this prose down and you have something so brilliantly drinkable, unique feeling and beautifully poised between its elements, while remaining expressive and kinda wild. Jeepers, onto something here.
