The Wine Advocate
93 Points

Kumeu River's 2017 Coddington Chardonnay was barrel-fermented and aged in 25% new oak. Marginally tighter and more structured than the estate bottling, it offers hints of struck flint on the nose, followed by notes of wet stone, nectarine and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied, it's loud, lush and long, with hints of pencil shavings on the finish.

The 2017 Coddington Chardonnay has a fresh, well-defined bouquet with fine mineralité and hints of white flowers. This is backward and clearly needs more time. The palate is taut and fresh with a killer line of acidity, plenty of citrus fruit and orange zest and flint-like notes toward the persistent, razor-sharp finish. This is a top-notch Coddington, but be patient. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London.

Vibrant and expressive, featuring peppery white floral notes that mingle with pear and citrus flavors. Makrut lime and fresh ginger accents linger on the sleek, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2029.

Very cool and delicate. Yet, in spite of the peach and honeysuckle aromas already showing, this is still quite tight. Precisely delineated, medium to full palate with a lot of minerality, the finish very long and precise. Better from 2019 or 2020.
