      Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu – 2016

      Wine Spectator
      90 Points

      Opens with a pretty floral note, with apple blossom and orange zest details that are effusive, crisp and refreshing against a firm, juicy frame. Herbal and spice accents linger in the background. Drink now. 112 cases imported.

      Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu – 2016

      Wine Enthusiast
      91 Points

      Located significantly further north than most of New Zealand's vineyards, Kumeu River's maritime influence is what helps this area remain cool. This single vineyard wine is shining in appealing salty, nutty characters that blend with pineapple, mango rind and lemon. The palate is still somewhat in its shell, however, making the oak and acidity stand out more than normal. Give this time to unravel and the fruit and honeyed characters should start to emerge. Drink 2019–2025.

      Chardonnay, Coddington, Kumeu – 2016

      Vinous
      92 Points

      The 2016 Coddington Chardonnay has an elegant white flower and lemon peel bouquet, perhaps slightly less mineral-driven than the 2017. The palate is taut and linear, displaying a little more bitter lemon than the 2017 but showing outstanding tension and mineralité toward the long finish. This has so much verve and class. Tasted at the Kumeu River Chardonnay vertical in London.

      The ripe, creamy-textured 2016 Coddington Chardonnay also boasts a crisp, tight line of pineapple and citrus that pulls the wine together and gives it depth and shape on the palate. Toasted grain and white peach notes provide much of the flesh, but there's also a silky, custardy feel on the palate, extending through the lengthy finish.
