"The Coddington is traditionally their ripest because that vineyard is their warmest...has wonderful balance of peach-like flavors, citrus notes and a hint of creaminess. Mouth-watering acidity keeps it all together."

“Perhaps the biggest of Kumeu River’s 2008 Chardonnays, the Coddington offers waves of tropical fruit—pineapple and carambola—allied to mouthfilling richness and balanced by citrusy acids and hints of roasted nuts.”

"Underneath the caramel scents, there’s an intense, seashell-like minerality that develops with air while the wood begins to mellow into the fruit flavors of lemon curd...decant for a creamy seafood stew."

“This delivers wonderful depth and purity to flavors of lemon curd, yellow apple, Meyer lemon and apricot. Aromatic, with lanolin, honeycomb and floral notes, a terrific silky texture and wonderful acidity.”
