Lake Chalice 'The Platinum' Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Tasting Notes

Our Platinum range - only ever produced in exceptional years - is one where vineyard site, exceptional fruit quality and winemaking technique collide in the perfect circumstances to create our very best wines.

After hand harvesting, a portion of the fruit is divided for whole bunch pressing before being fermented in seasoned French oak barriques with select yeast. As a result, the aromatics are ripe with young grapefruit and framed with blackcurrant leaf. The palate, full and round bursts of sweet passionfruit with a texture somewhat oily, finishing with a pleasant lingering acidity.

Enjoy now or cellar for up to 5 years or more.

Enjoy with seafood, especially fresh scallops and squid.
