The Brajkovichs are focused on and internationally recognised as producing world class Chardonnay. The single-vineyard Coddington wine is strongly coloured and richly ripe in the yellow peach and apricot spectrum, with a background of toasted oak and caramelised hazelnut. It is the biggest style in the range, and satisfyingly rich as such, but also nicely balanced with its acidity.
