Coopers Creek SV Allison Marsanne
Full bodied with a bit of vroom vroom!

Coopers Creek SV Allison Marsanne

2013, Gisborne New Zealand

Chicken Fish Shellfish
  • NZ's first ever release of Marsanne - a grape normally grown in the Rhone Valley, France.
  • As reviewed in NZ Herald's VIVA section, and "Wine of the Week" in NZ Listener Magazine
  • No, Allison isn't the name of the winemaker's wife or daughter. It's his recently restored supercharged V12 engine!

These guys are renowned for giving any crazy, unusual, unknown grape varieties a crack and nearly always they’re a runaway success with the medal cabinet at Coopers Creek bulging at the seams!

Apparently this is NZ’s first ever release of Marsanne, a variety normally grown in the Rhone Valley in France. Grape growers (come petrol heads) Doug and Delwyn Bell grow the grapes for this wine right here in Gizzy, where it seems to enjoy the warm dry weather.

The guys at Coopers Creek have named it Allison after Doug’s recently restored Allison supercharged V12 engine that he got out of a WW2 Curtiss Kittyhawk (an American single-engine, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground attack aircraft!). We can only assume he’s going to drop it in his mechanical harvester to speed things up come picking season!

Full bodied with ripe peachy stone fruit flavours with a dry finish, this has summer written all over it. Great with vegetarian dishes, fish, scallops, or chicken.

The lowdown: 13% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
