Description

Lake Chalice The Raptor Pinot Noir

Lake Chalice The Raptor Pinot Noir  has a dense rich palate full of ripe black fruits, spices, and olive brine. A rich silky structure leads to a luscious full finish with toasty notes and savoury favours.

A limited release expression consisting of small parcels of fruit from our flagship vineyard, the Eyrie Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley Marlborough. We select fruits from only the finest of our harvest, integrating elements of barrel fermentation for a fuller body and increased complexity.

Style: Dry

Vineyard: Sourced from the Eyrie vineyard

Winemaker: Chloe Gabrielsen – raised in Tūrangi on the shores of the mighty Lake Taupo, Chloe’s early exposure to viticulture began with helping her parents pick out wine from the local store (fiends for a big Aussie red). After finishing college in 2001, Chloe moved to Marlborough to pursue a Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology through Lincoln University, completing her first harvest at the Saint Clair Family Estate in 2006.

Now Chloe represents Lake Chalice as Winemaker, expressing our vineyards through our wines; that is when she’s not being a Mum to Asher, a member of multiple sports teams, performing in Kapa haka (Māori performing arts), being a cross-fit addict or cooking a mean kai (kiwi food).

Vinification: Fermented for a full 11 months in seasoned French oak barriques.

Appearance: Deep garnet with a thin light rim.

Bouquet: Aromatic floral notes with spices and toasty oak.

Palate: Dense rich palate full of ripe black fruits, spices, and olive brine. A rich silky structure leads to a luscious full finish with toasty notes and savoury favours.

Cellaring: Enjoy now or if you are a patient appreciator of wine, you can cellar for 5+ years.

“The Raptor is a generic term for all birds of prey. These are birds that primarily hunt and feed on vertebrates that are large, relative to the hunter. Additionally, they have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance or during flight, strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh.

There are four species of raptors that are native to New Zealand (one of which is the falcon). These superior birds fulfil a unique role with New Zealand’s ecosystem making them vital to the maintenance of a healthy New Zealand environment.

Our Raptor range of wines align with the birds of prey as (like the birds) they are superior examples. Lake Chalice winemaker Chloe targets particular small parcels of unique fruit, sometimes from a single vineyard, that stand out as excellent examples of a particular variety displaying clear varietal expression.” – Lake Chalice Wines | Wine from Marlborough New Zealand

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence.
