This wine is produced from a vineyard owned by Tim and Angela Coddington, whose grapes have contributed to the blend of Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay since 1998. It is a vineyard that produces very rich and unctuous Chardonnay that we have long believed could make an excellent single vineyard wine. In 2006, we decided to give Coddington single vineyard status to reflect this vineyard’s unique character.
Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 2015 Coddington has a beautiful nose showing the typical rich peach aromas along with citrus peel which is more a reflection of the vintage. The concertation of 2015 really comes through on the palate with a ringing acidity on the long and intense finish
