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 for this wine is sourced from selected vineyards in Marlborough’s central
Wairau Valley, predominantly from the fertile Dillon's Point sub-region. The eastern
flood plain soils are nutrient-rich silty loam, renowned for delivering Marlborough’s
iconic tropical flavoured Sauvignon Blanc. In order to capture the maximum
expression of regional characteristics, the pruning, irrigation and canopy
management is dictated by each variety and by each unique block of land.


Winemaking
The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night, in order to retain the vibrant aromas
and fruity flavours. The grapes were gently pressed with minimal skin contact, prior to
being fermented under temperature controlled, cool conditions. The clear juice was
fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts in order to preserve the purity
of fruit and encourage maximum thiol characters. Thiols are the compounds
naturally found on the Sauvignon Blanc grapes which are responsible for
Marlborough’s signature tropical notes.


Tasting Note
A clear, bright wine with subtle aromas of blackcurrant bud, river stones and rock
salt. The vibrant palate is fresh, juicy and textured with mineral notes layered with
blackcurrant fruit through to a refreshing, zesty finish.
