Product Description

"Apricot, pear, yellow apple and orange zest notes are enlivened by very crisp acidity, zeroing in on citrus notes on the finish, which shows with a touch of lemon pith. Drink now."
89 Points Wine Spectator

"The 2011 Coddington Chardonnay entices with a nose of apricots, pink grapefruit and toasted almonds accented by hints of ginger and mace. Tightly knit at this youthful stage, the medium-bodied palate gives a wonderful intensity of citrus and spicy stone fruit flavors, plus a refreshing burst of acidity through a long finish. Drink it 2014 to 2019+."

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2010
"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.

The 2011 Coddington shows the typical ripe peachy fruit we expect from this site and we also see depth and layers of concentration due to the tiny cropping level.  The palate is forward with a luxurious creamy texture and lovely balancing acidity. Although clearly delicious in its youth, this wine will benefit from a period of bottle maturation of two to five years" Winemaker's Note


"The 2010 Coddington Chardonnay opens with delicate notes of warm lemons, white peaches and fresh ginger with hints of apple tart and crushed stones. This medium-bodied, vibrant and silky Chardonnay has great concentration and a long, citrusy finish. Drink it now to 2017+."
