    There ain’t nothin’ Plain about it – especially this price! Coopers Creek are best known for producing wicked Chardonnay labels like the iconic “Limeworks” and the notch up “Swamp Reserve”.

    A couple of years back when disaster hit and a spring frost wiped out most of the fruit for their number one selling wine (Limeworks), they had to pull out all the stops and use all their contacts in the Hawke’s Bay to produce a new edition to replace it, the “Plainsman”.

    A medium bodied, barrel fermented Chardonnay with sweet fruit with a rich, creamy finish.

    From an awesome 2015 vintage (the third vintage in a row in The Bay that’s left grape growers and winemakers totally grinning) and produced from fruit sourced from three different Hawke’s Bay vineyards. This is the kind of rich style of white that is perfect with richly flavoured dishes, especially chicken, pork, fish and crayfish.
