Lake Chalice The Falcon Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Feb-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with some depth. This has an enticing bouquet, filled the glass with peach, green mango and citrus entwined with pastry and a hint of marzipan. Full-bodied, aromas of peach and grapefruit melded with creamy marzipan, walnut and pastry. The mouthfeel is creamy; a hint of spice adds a prickly sensation. Toasty layers of walnut and pastry added complexity. This creamy Chardonnay possesses concentrated fruit, spice layers and pastry details. Match with roasted chicken and pork over the next 3- 5 years. The majority of fruit from Falcon Vineyard in Wairau Valley fermented in tank and seasoned oak, aged 7 months on lees and underwent MLF. 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $19.99
