A limited release Lake Chalice The Raptor expression of Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels growing region. Each batch is gently handled during fermentation with portions matured in seasoned French oak before being carefully bottled.
The Falcon Merlot is made from a select blend of vineyards sourced from the internationally recognised Hawke’s Bay growing region. Once harvest we transported the grapes overnight to our Marlborough winery to carry out the fermentation process while at peak freshness.
The Raptor Syrah 2019
The fruit is selected and harvested from within the internationally acclaimed Gimblett Gravels wine growing district of Hawke’s Bay. A round, full, luscious palate. Aromatic dark stone fruits with mixed wild berries leading to a toasty finish.
The Falcon Merlot 2020
The harvested fruit was transported overnight from Hawke’s Bay to our Marlborough winery. On arrival, the grapes were inoculated with yeast to begin the fermenting process. We regularly plunged and pumped-over for high flavour extraction during fermentation. Creating a full bodied palate with dark fruity elements and hints of savoury olives and warmed tar.
