Lake Chalice 'The Falcon' Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

You are here

Tasting Notes

Medium bodied with a soft full palate, well balanced acidity, supple tannins and flavours that linger. Flavours of cherry, red berries and a touch of mushroom, well supported by nuisances of fine grained oak tannins.

Enjoyable in its youth, or cellar and savour as it develops over the next three years or more.

A great match with prime New Zealand lamb, duck, or a rich oily textured fillet of salmon.
