Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay Tasting Notes
Presents a strong colour and rich ripeness, rich aromas of yellow peach and apricot, with a background of toasted oak and caramelised hazelnut.
It is the biggest style in the range, and satisfyingly rich as such, but also very well balanced with its acidity.
