    A classic rendition of one of New Zealand's best Chardonnays. All the hallmarks of what makes Kumeu River so special. Tension, texture, packed with flavor but lithe and energized at the same time. Crunchy quince, greengage plum, citrus rind, flint, almond skin, freshly baked bread. The wine has a broad and rich texture but also line, length and mouthwatering acidity. This wouldn't look out of place in a high-end Meursault tasting. Tons of class at a sharp price.

    Situated between the Tasman Sea to the west (12 miles away) and the Pacific Ocean to the east (19 miles away) the Coddington vineyard stays moderate to very cool all season long, and it rarely ever gets past the mid eighties. This long, slow ripening of the grapes combined with deep rooted vineyards that see no irrigation is the real secret behind Kumeu’s clean, elegant, and famously precise wine style. In the glass you’ll find freshly baked lime tart, breakfast toast, citrus blossom, and an undercurrent of mineral water packaged together harmoniously. On the palate the balanced acidity carries a clean translation of bouquet’s notes with some white peach and bolder citrus blossom. This bright, elegant wine has a lasting finish that you may never see the end of as you regularly return for follow up sips…
