2014 Coddington Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

The nose on this is simply delightful, with peachy concentration and a certain lusciousness endowed by Kumeu’s warmest vineyard. The palate is silky and delicious: it warrants keeping for a number of years, but it may just be too hard to do so.

2014 Coddington Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu
Kumeu River

Called “White Burgundy in Kiwi clothing” by Neal Martin and "an Auckland Pearl" by Julia Harding MW, no New World producer has received such critical acclaim over the last few years as Kumeu River. It’s no surprise: this is a New Zealand Chardonnay producer crafting wines of Grand Cru quality at village wine prices. And the connection to Burgundy is apt: these wines are dead ringers for top white Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet or Meursault, without losing their own sense of identity.
