Clear pale straw in the glass. The bouquet is fresh showing passionfruit, blackcurrant bud and grapefruit zest. Palate is bold with mineral notes balanced with gooseberry and ripe citrus with subtle green notes.
The Falcon range is the mainstay and signature of the Lake Chalice portfolio, representing signature flavours unique to our vineyards expressed in a wide range of grape varieties.
The majority of fruit for this wine was harvested from the mature vines in our loam rich Talon block in Dillons Point in the central Wairau Valley, Marlborough.
Upon harvesting, all grapes are transported and pressed without delay to minimise skin contact and retain freshness. Cool fermented in stainless steel for added vibrancy and crispness.
This will continue to develop over the next 3 years.
