2019 Joshua Cooper Captain's Creek Vineyard Chardonnay
The Captain's Creek is the most accessible of Josh’s 2019 wines at this early stage of their evolution. It’s not as tightly coiled as the others. Instead it’s the one that you can open today and get straight into.
The fruit is taken from a certified organic vineyard just outside of the Macedon Ranges that has been in the same family since 1909. The vines are over 35 years old. The elevation is significant at 500m. All in all, it’s an amazing vineyard.
Expect flavours of lemon curd, citrus, oatmeal and stoney minerality. It’s still tight and refreshing but also possesses a juiciness that makes it very easy to enjoy young.
