Chardonnay showing flavour, thank you.
About The Wine
Joshua Cooper shows a deft touch in his handling of cool-climate Chardonnay.
His single vineyard expressions of the variety from the Macedon Ranges and beyond are emerging as some of the most compelling of the Victorian avant-garde wine scene.
This release of Chardonnay from a certified organic site just beyond the reach of the Macedon GI is one of his most scintillating to date.
It's skeletal, laser-focused and mesmerising to drink. Josh Cooper, take a bow.
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.
