Coddington, Kumeu River
||Auckland, New Zealand
||Peach, apricot and oak
Ripe peach, apricot and hazelnut flavours. Rich and opulent with creamy and buttery notes.
This wine is produced from a vineyard previously owned by Tim & Angela Coddington. Since 1998, their grapes have contributed to the Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay blend and due to its unique characteristics, in 2016, Michael Brajkovich gave Coddington a single vineyard status.
The 2021 vintage completes a trilogy of outstanding vintages. The 2021 was frost affected, reducing yield, which makes this Coddington even more peachy and luscious than usual. The single-vineyard Coddington wine is richly ripe in the yellow peach and apricot spectrum, with a background of toasted oak and caramelised hazelnut. It is the biggest style in our range, and satisfyingly rich as such, but also nicely balanced with its acidity.
