2018 Coddington Chardonnay, Kumeu River, Kumeu

Is this the best Coddington we’ve tried? Slightly more focussed than in some vintages, there’s a depth of flavour still, but also with this beautiful floral, acacia character. Notes of fresh peach and greengage, and a touch of ginger on the finish. Brilliant.

2018 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.
