Winemaker

Michael Brajkovich MW

This wine is produced from a vineyard owned by Tim and Angela Coddington, whose grapes have contributed to the blend of Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay since 1998. It is a vineyard that produces very rich and unctuous Chardonnay that we have long believed could make an excellent single vineyard wine. In 2006, we decided to give Coddington single vineyard status to reflect this vineyard’s unique character.

Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 2016 Coddington has a beautiful nose showing the rich peach aromas and luscious creaminess we expect from this vineyard. The 2016 is supple, beautifully balanced and deceptively easy to drink at this early stage. No doubt this wine will also take on lovely bottle age as it has done with previous vintages.
