'An impressive bouquet and palate with complex touching on beguiling bouquet with aromas of cashew and smoke, white peach, apple and apricot then mineral salts and calm even layers of oak begin to layer through. On the palate - a mirror image of the nose with a silky textured mouth feel, contrasting acidity, delicate creaminess and soft nutty cashew cream layer. Long finish with a whisper of white smoke. Fabulous wine, an excellent opportunity to stock the cellar with a Chardonnay example that will last for ten years, if not longer.' (Cameron Douglas, 96/100)

This is a punchy and chiseled Coddington with attractive peach and citrus-fruit aromas, as well as hazelnuts and white stones. The palate has a very focused, pure shape with a central spine of intense peach flavor, crisp phenolics and clenching acidity to close. Real drive here. Drink or hold.

Gently aromatic and quite concentrated chardonnay with peach, melon, citrus and a hint of oyster-shell and mineral character supported by deliciously fruity acidity that helps drive a lengthy finish. There is also a toast, brioche influence adding extra complexity.
Quite broad on the nose and more obviously fruity (rather than savoury) than the Estate Chardonnay 2019, though it will obviously take on more subtlety with time. Pretty impressive finish to the palate, on which mandarin and passion-fruit flavours reverberate.

This Chardonnay is expansive, filling the mouth with its subtle flavors yet retaining a sense of lightness. Its girth is wrapped in a firm belt of acidity that holds everything in a streamlined whole. Chardonnay is a non-aromatic variety and the fine aromas of nectarine and oatmeal combine with a barrel-derived smoky note on the drawn-out finish.
