Kumeu River, Coddington Chardonnay, Kumeu, Auckland - 2018

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

This wine is produced from a vineyard owned by Tim and Angela Coddington whose grapes have contributed to the blend of Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay since 1998. It is a vineyard that produces very rich and unctuous Chardonnay that we have long believed could make an excellent single vineyard wine. In 2006 we decided to give Coddington single vineyard status to reflect this vineyard’s unique character.

Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 2018 Coddington has the typical ripe peach and rich nature on the nose. The palate is beautifully forward with a supple approachability that is common with the 2018 Chardonnays. The wine has density, concentration and luscious creaminess we expect from Coddington and while this makes the wine easy to drink at this early stage no doubt it will take on lovely bottle age as it has done with previous vintages.

"This has very attractive richness and complexity. Fresh, nectarine and peach aromas and flavors are delivered in such energetically textural and powerful style. Impressive length and focus. Drink now. Screw cap."
