Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu
The Wine Advocate
Tighter and more linear than usual, the 2018 Coddington Chardonnay boasts scents of pencil shavings set against a backdrop of grapefruit and pineapple. It's medium-bodied, crisp and focused, with a bright beam of acid and hints of citrus pith on the finish.
This has very attractive richness and complexity. Fresh, nectarine and peach aromas and flavors are delivered in such energetically textural and powerful style. Impressive length and focus. Drink now. Screw cap.
