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’.


Vintage
Winter was not a particularly cold one, however some colder frosts were recorded
during May and June; fortunately warming sunshine during the day alleviated
pressure. Some showery weather was experienced in December, but after January
the rain departed and settled weather arrived, bringing with it very warm
temperatures and excellent conditions for harvest.


Vineyard
The fruit is harvested from a single vineyard, the Walsh block in the Woodbourne
area of Marlborough's central Wairau region. The berries are carefully selected at
harvest time and are picked at an average of only 19.8 Brix, in order to retain the
fresh citrus flavours. The vineyard’s stony, sandy soil results in low yields of intensely
flavoured fruit from a combination of different pruning methods.


Winemaking
The grapes underwent a long, cool fermentation under temperature controlled
conditions in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was arrested in order to create an
off-dry style and lower alcohol.


Tasting Note
A refreshing Riesling with enticing aromas of apple and pear layered with ripe and
juicy citrus notes. Harmoniously balanced with great structure and a long, lingering
off-dry finish.
