Lake Chalice 'The Falcon' Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2017

Tasting Notes

Harvested exclusively from Pinot Noir vines within our own Falcon vineyard in the Renwick region of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. Long, cool, controlled fermentation arrested early to deliver a lower alcohol wine without compromising on the ripened flavours developed in the vineyard. Soaked on skins before pressing for higher aromatics.

Palate & Aroma: Fresh strawberry, raspberry and dusted pink marshmallow on the nose following a fresh and clean palate of ripe raspberries and apple blossom.
