2020 Lake Chalice Wines – The Falcon Riesling 2020
A racy, medium-dry Riesling from our Walsh vineyard, Marlborough. To taste, it’s like a car chase scene from a movie. You’re in the driver’s seat of an open-top car speeding around a corner. You smash into a fresh lemonade stand. As you see the stand owner pump his fist in your rearview mirror, you lick your lips and experience the delicious combo of ripe fresh citrus and juicy lemonade. Cut to new scene. Racing gloves hold a glass of fine Riesling, you take your first sip. The end. Until the next sip that is.
Fruit taken from the Walsh Vineyard in the Woodbourne area, and the Doctor’s Creek Vineyard from the Burleigh area.
Long, cool controlled fermentation using a dedicated aromatic yeast to enhance bouquet and citrus characters. Fermentation was arrested early for a lower alcohol, off dry wine character.
Apple and pear
Ripe layered citrus and pip fruit flavours give way to juicy lemonade characters - delicious!
Enjoy now (probably best to wait till you’re home) and over the next 3-5 years.
6 x 750ml bottles, screw cap closure.
