Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay

Coddington is Kumeu River’s richest, ripest source of chardonnay, producing a powerful wine of confident structure and intense fruit of honed lemon, grapefruit and peach, verging on apricot. Yet at every moment it maintains the house style of chiselled structure, excellent acid drive and impressive mouthfeel, layered with texture, lingering very long. $46 at Cellar d’Or.
