Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2016
Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 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 really comes through on the palate with a ringing acidity on the long and intense finish
The Brajkovich family relocated from Croatia and soon became the founding family of the wine industry in New Zealand. After years of growth and development, their winery Kumeu River produces over 250,000 bottles a year. Kumeu River is internationally recognised for making fine quality non-Burgundy Chardonnay.
