Are old Wii store purchases recoverable on a new Wii U?

I used to have a Wii some years ago and had quite a lot of downloaded content, espcially virtual console titles and some "wiiware" games. The Wii broke and was thrown away. We're thinking of getting a Wii U for my kids and I wondered if these purchases are now lost.
I know that some purchases can be transferred using us a special procedure and an SD Card if you physically have access to both consoles, which I don't. I almost certainly still have the same email address that is on the Wii account (if there is one?!) but I don't know where to log in or what account recovery options there are.
