To experience the aroma and taste of this rich and concentrated Pinot Noir from Marlborough let's go somewhere else for a moment.

2019 Lake Chalice Wines – The Falcon Pinot Noir 2019

You’re welcomed into a farmhouse kitchen. In your hands, you carry a cloth-covered basket with ingredients for the cook. As you lift the cloth to reveal what’s inside, the glorious aroma of ripe black cherries, in combination with warm spices, hits you. What surprise are they making? You add your ripe cherries to the abundantly filled bowl of red fruits, berries and cocoa, on the table. The farmhouse cook begins mixing them all together, offering you a cheeky little taste from their spoon. Juicy, full and concentrated, the ripe fruits linger in your mouth. You’ve done your job as the guest and taster. Now let them finish mixing their delicious recipe. Are you ready for a glass of this Falcon Pinot Noir?
