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’.
The fruit for this wine was harvested from vineyards across the Wairau and southern
Waihopai Valleys in Marlborough. The vineyards situated in the sheltered southern
Waihopai Valley have well-draining clay over gravel soils, which offer good drainage
and aeration. The clay soils have the capacity to retain positively charged nutrients,
which are beneficial to plant health and add an element of growth restriction, keeping
the Pinot Noir balanced in its growth. The clay and gravel soils also help to restrict berry
size, creating thicker skins, which in turn leads to more flavour and better
concentration. The vines are trained with two canes which further helps to obtain
concentrated fruit flavours.
The grapes were delivered to the winery immediately after harvest retaining the
freshness of the fruit. Afer the fruit was cold soaked, fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit and during the peak of fermentation the must was
hand-plunged up to eight times per day, in order to ensure the desired levels of fine
tannins, colour and flavours were extracted. The wine went through malolactic
conversion resulting in a silky texture. Maturation for six months in seasoned French oak
barriques followed, imparting subtle complexity to the wine.
Tasting Note
An elegant and silky Pinot Noir with aromatic notes of sweet, ripe raspberries, leafy
overtones and hints of dried thyme. Fresh and bright with red fruits on the smooth,
rounded palate, through to a long, toasty finish.
