Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu – 2011
The 2011 Coddington shows the typical ripe, peachy fruit expected from this vineyard site. Due to a small cropping level, there is depth and layers of concentration present in the wine. 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.
