PRODUCER
Coopers Creek was established by Andrew and Cynthia Hendry in 1980 with the aim of producing the very highest quality wines, principally in dry styles and reflecting New Zealand’s outstanding cool climate viticultural conditions. The Coopers Creek label first appeared in 1982, since when they have continued to develop their vineyards, extend the range, and advance their reputation as one of the best performing and most eclectic medium-sized New Zealand wineries.

VINEYARD
Swamp Reserve is the flagship wine, and as such is made from the crème de la crème of the fruit from Coopers’ Middle Road Chardonnay vineyard in Hawkes Bay. This same vineyard has been providing the fruit for this wine since the early 1990s. For the 2009 vintage, three passes were made through the vineyard in order to pick the best fruit at optimum ripeness. The fruit is all hand-picked and then sorted, with the best few hundred cases’ worth being set aside for the Swamp Reserve.

WINERY
The three parcels were separately vinified, then assembled after ten months ageing in French oak. The final blend contains approximately fifty percent new oak. Once the malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine sat on gross lees until blending.
