2015 Coddington Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

‘The best Coddington ever, similar to 2014 with the peachy character that the site tends to express but more restraint on the palate.’ comments Paul Brajkovich.

There’s a cool, mineral intensity on the nose with a restrained toasty complexity, beautifully concealing an inviting viscosity of fruit on the palate. Superb intensity and a leesy fresh finish.

2015 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.
