Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2018

The Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay is produced from a vineyard owned by Tim and Angela Coddington and 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 the team at Kumeu have long believed could make an excellent single vineyard wine. In 2006 it was 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 expected 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.
