2019 Lake Chalice Wines – The Falcon Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Sourced from Marlborough's Lower Wairau Valley, the grapes for this wine were picked in peak condition, before cool fermentation to retain freshness and elegance. The Falcon Sauvignon Blanc is made to showcase our Talon vineyard.

Region

Dillons Point, Marlborough

Style

Dry, concentrated and elegant.

Vineyard

The majority of fruit is harvested from the mature vines of our Talon block located in the famously fertile area of Dillons Point known to produce outstanding Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaker

Chloe Gabrielsen

Vinification

Pressed immediately following harvest to minimise skin contact and retain freshness, then cool-fermented to maintain rich aromatics.

Appearance

Pale green.

Bouquet

Lime zest, lychee and peach.

Palate

A lively and classic style Sauvignon Blanc. Juicy upfront and full of flavour. Freshly grated lemon zest with crunchy, crisp Granny Smith apples and subtle mineral notes lead to a long, vibrant finish.

Cellaring

Enjoy now and over the next 3 years. If it makes it past the time it takes to chill we’d be impressed.

Vegan

Vegan and vegetarian friendly.

Packaging

6 x 750mL bottles, screw cap closure.
