Hera is the Queen of the Olympian Gods. She is known as the protector of women, and the Goddess of marriage and birth. Hera is usually overshadowed by her husband Zeus. However, even before her marriage she ruled over the heavens and the Earth.

For this reason she is commonly referred to as ‘The Queen of the Heavens.’

The wine is barrel fermented in tight grained French oak by wild yeast and completes a 100% malolactic fermentation.

Odyssey Hera Limited Release Gisborne Chardonnay 2022 *****

Gisborne Chardonnay at its finest, this powerful ,distinctive wine was grown in the Golden Triangle, hand harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak casks. Pale straw, it is fleshy and very savoury, with lush stone fruits and spice flavours, toasty notes adding complexity, balanced acidity , and a very harmonious finish. Already delicious, its a drink now or cellaring proposition.
