Lake Chalice 2017 ‘The Falcon’ Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling, and Raptor Chardonnay

19-Sep-2018

In June 2016, the Ibbotson family acquired the Lake Chalice brand and vineyards to come under the Saint Clair umbrella. The Lake Chalice wines of Chris Gambitsis and Phil Binnie have developed a style and gained a customer loyalty that is part of the brand. The Ibbotsons are keen to retain these aspects, while raising the standard of the wines. Since the purchase, the Lake Chalice wines have undergone tier consolidation and labelling improvements. Chloe Gabrielsen has taken on the winemaking responsibility for the Lake Chalice wines. In what I’ve tasted, there are definite steps forward. Here, I review the 2017 ‘The Falcon’ Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling, and ‘The Raptor’ Chardonnay. www.lakechalice.com
