Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu – 2012 – 92 points –
92 points

“In my experience, Kumeu River is the best New Zealand Chardonnay producer. Of course, I’ve not tasted every Chardonnay coming out of that country, but it’s hard for me to believe there’s a better overall producer of that varietal in New Zealand than Kumeu River. Year in and year out their lineup of Chardonnay is simply stunning. Each bottling is distinctive — and thoroughly captivating. Though Coddington vineyard faces north and gets maximum warmth, the 2012 Coddington Chardonnay has a taut Chablis-like verve with the barest hint of white pepper-like spice. Its laser-like focus is brilliant, while a lime-like finish amplifies its flavors.”
