Odyssey Reserve Iliad Gisborne Chardonnay (2020)

Delicious in its youth, the 2020 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested in the Golden Triangle and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Bright, light gold/green, it is a powerful, full-bodied wine, rich and smooth-flowing, with concentrated, ripe stone-fruit flavours, enriched with toasty oak, balanced acidity and a hint of butterscotch. Best drinking 2023+. Fine value.
