Quite fleshy with tree fruit, peach, nectarine and yellow-fleshed plum flavours, together with a subtle seasoning of nutty lees and spicy oak character. An initial sense of fruit opulence leads to a dry and slightly grainy finish.

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. Drink now.

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+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Notes of peppery white flowers, spice and green tea linger on the finish. Drink now...
