The Limeworks obviously works by the way it keeps rolling out the door. The 2018 vintage of Coopers Creek Limeworks is really starting to open out and is drinking fantastically right now. With as much value as it has flavour, this is a bigger, fatter styled Chardonnay complete with a good dollop of oak (including 20% new American oak) and a nice vein of limestone driven mineral acidity giving it lift and persistence.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Vintage 2018 was very challenging in Hawkes Bay. This wine is testament to the extraordinary skills of our vineyard staff. Faced with very challenging conditions, they worked tirelessly to ensure that, in 2018, we harvested some of the best fruit we have ever seen off our Limeworks Block. This wine is mainly machine harvested fruit, supplemented by a small hand-picked parcel. Post pressing and settling the juice was run off to barrel (20% new American) for fermentation and MLF. The MLFs moved very quickly in 2018 and post that, the wine stayed in barrel until February 2019.

A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak. This is a big, rich Chardonnay. It has weight, sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"A wonderfully styled chardonnay, the fragrant bouquet shows white flesh nectarine, baked fig, vanilla pod and cedar characters, followed by a concentrated palate that's creamy and lingering. The wine offers terrific fruit purity together with seductive oak complexity, making it hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2024."


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"A smooth-textured wine, with a vibrant thread of thrilling acidity promoting a mouth-cleansing finish. Excellent value."


93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Very alluring aromas of soil then fruit, flowers then oak, baking spices then lees. On the palate – weighty, creamy, fruity, focused and fresh. Flavours suggest white and yellow peach, golden delicious apple and quince. There’s a seam of citrus peel adding tension and flavour then baking spice of vanilla and sweetness of oak. A Burgundian moment draws me in for another taste. A lengthy, intriguing and tasty wine. Drink now and through 2024."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"If you like toasty, creamy, full-flavoured Chardonnays, try this. Grown in the Havelock North hills, the 2018 vintage was fermented and matured for 10 months in American oak casks (30 per cent new), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Fragrant and full-bodied, it has generous stone-fruit flavours, strongly seasoned with toasty oak, and good complexity."


4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, September 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is very tight and finely concentrated with aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined in an amalgam of flinty reductive complexities, and sweet, nutty American oak. This has very good depth and penetration. Medium-bodied, the palate has intense and vibrant flavours of white and yellow stonefruits melded with spicy, nutty oak, forming an intense and concentrated core. This has good flavour depth and drive, and the wine carries along a fine-textured line with plenty of power carrying to a concentrated finish of fruit, oak and flint. This is an intensely concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and nutty oak, with subtle flinty complexities on a well-driven line. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Fruit from the ‘Limeworks’ vineyard, near Havelock North, fully barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged on lees 10 months in 30% new mainly American oak, undergoing batonnage and full MLF."

  • review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    review rating 5  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
