The soil here is predominately clay and the vines are all Clone 15. The 2008 Coddington Chardonnay is the third vintage of this wine produced by Kumeu River. Barrel fermented using natural yeasts and about 20-25% new French oak.100% goes through malo-lactic. The nose is already very expressive displaying really intense ripe pineapple and pink guava aromas with a toasty/biscuit undercurrent and nuances of lime juice orange blossom and some butterscotch. Very crisp rich and medium-full bodied this opulent satin textured wine gives a long exotic-fruited finish. It's temptingly approachable now though it should drink best 2013-2017+. Around 850 cases were produced. -LPB
