Reserve Iliad Pinot Noir 2017
The Odyssey Vineyard is one of the most elevated sites in Marlborough and situated on the acclaimed Southern Valleys. Permeable silt loam over clay gives rise to these complex, dense Pinots with beautiful forest fruits and savoury flavours. Six different Dijon Clones of Pinot Noir are close planted in various sites on the vineyard, fermented separately to enhance each component, then ultimately blended.
The vintage of 2017 was warm leading to ripe fruited wines with great tannin structure has led to this concentrated wine with abundant fruit flavours and a sweet palate impression. Meticulous canopy management all done by hand has resulted in fruit in the best condition being delivered to the winery. Harvested 25 March- 7 April 2017.
The Odyssey Reserve Iliad label is reserved for those wines which show exceptional finesse and character. This Pinot Noir is concentrated with blackberry and cherry fruit flavours. The sweet fruit, cedary oak and silky tannins give weight to a wine which will age particularly well.
