What’s in the glass tonight Aug 4th


KR Coddington Chardonnay 2010

From the Cellar: Kumeu River Coddington SV Chardonnay Auckland 2010 – $$$+

At a long-ago KR tasting, this was my favourite Chardonnay, from the Coddington single vineyard, so I saved up and bought a bottle. I opened it tonight to celebrate putting my old house on the market…

Pale gold. 13.5% alc.

Fine and perfumed. Oily, even.

Tertiary flavours – unctuous. Fine line of citrus throughout. Biscuity. A sharp finish with apples at the death. Superb wine at a good age. Suited the Mac Cheese dinner. too.

BTVG 4+

P1040764

This was where I picked up the pieces after my separation. Thanks for the good memories, House…
