When we recall the best Chardonnay made outside Burgundy there is one estate that comes to mind immediately – Kumeu River from New Zealand. There are not too many producers from "the new world" that is confident enough to arrange a blind tasting against leading Burgundy producers such as Comte des Lafon, Etienne Sauzet, Domaine Leflaive, Joseph Drouhin, to name a few. But the blind tasting among professional critics in 2015 justified that this wonderful estate shouldn’t be overlooked, as in four rounds of the blind tasting, four bottles of Kumeu River Chardonnay led the game and was awarded the highest scores against other top Burgundies.
Every year we buy and taste Kumeu River and we think their quality is improving year after year. We have a case of 2014 Coddington recently arrived in stock. Don’t miss out the chance to try this excellent Chardonnay from NewZealand -
Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2014 HK$330 per bottle

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+.
