The wine from the Coddington Vineyard shows the typical ripe peachy fruit we expect from this site. The palate is forward with a luxurious creamy texture and lovely balancing acidity. This wine, while delicious in its youth, will benefit from a period of bottle maturation of two to four years.
"The outstanding 2006 Coddington
Chardonnay is a vineyard trained on a
single vertical trellis. It displays fantastic definition on the intense aromatics with crisp apple, limestone, apricot and white peach, the palate very concentrated with vibrant acidity, touches of apple and
walnut and very good weight on the
slightly honeyed, persistent finish. This Chardonnay should easily last more than a decade."
