2017 Joshua Cooper The Old Port Righ Vineyard Chardonnay

Macedon Ranges, VIC

A crisp and mineral-charged Chardonnay from a rising star of Vic wine.



About The Wine

This cool climate Chardonnay from Josh Cooper is an absolute cracker.

Gently handled, as is Josh's way, the hand-picked fruit from this old vineyard in the Macedon Ranges was gently pressed for 5 hours then sent to mostly old oak to mature for 12 months on lees. It's tightly wound, full of flavour and flush with big personality.

His Chardonnay sings of its home, the cool site on Cambrian and granite soils. It's pure Chardonnay of pure class. Great stuff from Josh.

About Joshua Cooper

Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.

A young winemaker on the rise, Josh is working with fruit from outside the family plot to craft his own suite of low-intervention wine. The growers he works with from across central Victoria farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability.

The wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper. He is one to watch closely as his own style and craftsmanship continue to evolve.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Lancefied vineyard, from Ben Rankin’s Wilimee vineyard, on Cambrian soil, planted 1982. Nice to see back-to-back Wilimee wines produced from chardonnay from this site, and the DNA of generosity yet freshness is writ large in this wine too. Real Lemonade scents, some floral notes, whiffs of general savouriness of oatmeal and biscuit. Ginger and lemon to taste, juicy but with a light crunch, pure-feeling and very long in flavour too. Lots of joyous feel to this wine, really delicious, moreish, with savouriness underpinning ripe citrus flavours. I wanted to get back to this wine. Oh yes." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
