Producer Note
Lake Chalice was established in 1989 with a vision of producing internationally
recognised wines from the heart of the Marlborough region. New Zealand’s native
falcon, the ‘Kārearea’, is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine.
Kārearea favour the remote mountains and foothills of the upper Awatere and
Wairau valleys and these valleys are home to Lake Chalice’s three unique vineyard
sites. Each vineyard has a diverse microclimate, biodiversity and terroir which are
seamlessly translated into multi award winning wines by talented winemaker Chloe
Gabrielsen. Taking a boutique approach she handcrafts parcels of fruit from single
vineyards into elegant, aromatic, fruit driven wines and has garnered a global
reputation of outstanding quality. Certified ‘Sustainable Winegrower of New
Zealand’.


Vineyard
The fruit is sourced primarily from Lake Chalice’s estate-owned Falcon Block, near
Renwick in the Rapaura district of the Wairau Valley. The Falcon Block sits on part of
an old river bed and as a result has stony, sandy soils. The vines are low yielding but
produce intensely flavoured fruit from a combination of different pruning methods.


Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted and vinified in stainless steel tanks. Once
fermentation was complete, the wine was pressed and racked into a combination of
French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks where it underwent malolactic
fermentation. 60% of the wine was aged on the lees for a minimum of seven months
in seasoned French oak.


Tasting Note
Vibrant aromas of ripe blueberries mingle with subtle notes of mulled spice. The full
and generous palate delivers a sweetness of ripe plum and forest fruits,
complemented by savoury overtones. Beautifully balanced and elegant on the finish.
