Estate Chardonnay 2020
The Odyssey Gisborne Chardonnay is sourced from Gisborne the most easterly of New Zealand’s grape growing regions and the first region to see the sun. This vineyard is one of the oldest in the region and the grapes are Mendoza clone which give small berries and concentrated flavor. We do not irrigate over summer as the heavy silt loam and clay in the soil holds the moisture .Gisborne experiences high sunshine hours over summer, perfect for the Chardonnay grape. The near perfect summer of 2020 meant we could harvest when the flavours had peaked and when the fruit was in optimum condition. Picking by hand has resulted in fruit in the best condition being delivered to the winery. Harvested 24 March 2020
Plump and fruity, this is a smooth drinking Chardonnay with ripe stone fruit, mango and citrus flavours. The palate is generous and comforting with creamy texture and a refreshing finish.
