Reserve Iliad Chardonnay 2020
The Odyssey Reserve Iliad Wines are reserved for those wines which show exceptional character and finesse... The Odyssey Reserve Iliad Gisborne Chardonnay is hand selected from the long term contracted ‘Kawitiri Vineyard’ in the Golden Triangle region of Gisborne. The Mendoza clone is grown on clay soil on an old river bed. Non irrigated and tended by hand these are some of the oldest vines in the region. Gisborne experiences high sunshine hours over summer, perfect for the Chardonnay grape. Picking by hand has resulted in fruit in the best condition being delivered to the winery. Harvested 28th March 2020.
Grown in the Kawitiri vineyard and fermented in 30% new French oak barriques, this is Gisborne Chardonnay at its finest. Richly fragrant, youthful and creamy, with a tight array of intense grapefruit, peach and fig flavours, it shows lovely delicacy and depth. Michael Cooper - NZ Icon Wine
A lovely expression of Gisborne Chardonnay – fruit forward and flavoursome. Lifted citrus, floral and peaches on the nose followed by a full, rich palate showing round, silky texture and well balanced acidity.
