Our Vineyards

Falcon Vineyard

The Falcon Vineyard was the foundation site for Lake Chalice Wines, situated in the heart of Marlborough's Wairau Valley and on part of an old river course. Vines must be carefully coaxed and nurtured to grow on its stony, sandy soils. Harvest yields are low but the return is intensely flavoured fruit.

 

VINEYARD SPEC:
Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Merlot, 
Area: 14.6 ha. (36.1ac)
Soil: Dry river gravel
First Planted: 1990
 

 


Eyrie Vineyard

This is our flagship vineyard located in the beautiful Waihopai Valley on the southern side of the Wairau Plain.  It is our flagship not only because the views are breathtaking,  but also because it has a high clay content in its soil profile and this means it grows incredible Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. And this makes us very happy.  

 

VINEYARD SPEC:
Varieties: Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir
Area: 11.1 ha. (27.4 ac.)
Soil: Well draining clay over gravel
First Planted: 2002
 


Talon Vineyard

Located in the now famous Dillon's Point area immediately to the east of Blenheim, our Talon block has rich, fertile soil with silty loam to a depth of at least 1.5 meters. This means the vines give us concentrated flavours in the grapes with the distinctive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc zing that the region has become famous for.   

 

VINEYARD SPEC:
Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc
Area: 11.4 ha. (28.2 ac.)
Soil: Rich loamy alluvium
First Planted: 2007
