Kumeu River Coddington Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

£24.95 per bottle

94 Points - James Suckling

Bright and citrusy style with gently toasty oak in a modern guise. This has a sense of pristine fruit ripeness, opening to white-peach aromas and a flinty edge. The palate's smoothly crafted, and the acidity keeps everything attractive in terms of beautiful stone-fruit flavors that sit in a sorbet-like texture. So much great freshness and resolve.

Taste & Aroma

Chassagne Montrachet without the eye watering price-tag! The ’14 has everything to offer to the drinker – Expressive aromatics, a palate which is exquisitely balanced, clean and very fresh. This is really showing off Kumeu’s pedigree. Drinking beautifully now but will handsomely repay cellaring (10+ years).

95 Points, Stuart McCloskey

With a savory, struck match undercurrent, the 2014 Coddington Chardonnay has a core of lemons, fresh grapefruit and yuzu with a touch of pineapple. Medium bodied and still quite tightly wound at this youthful stage, it gives and refreshing acid backbone throughout the long finish. It should age beautifully over the next 6-8 years+.
