Winemaker Notes

A bright clean appearance with fresh lime green hues. Pleasing aromas of grapefruit and white peach, with a floral lift. This medium bodied, dry wine has a refreshing an moreish palate. Mouth-watering acidity is balanced by an elegant, mineral finish.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2014 Lake Chalice The Nest Sauvignon Blanc is a very easy white wine to like; fresh, bright and smooth on the palate; perfect with Vietnamese spring rolls. Light straw color; pleasing attractive aroma; dried citrus, lavender, flowers, medium depth; medium bodied, nicely textured on the palate; slight residual sugar, nice acidity, good balance; citrus, apples and ripe orange skin in the flavors, medium finish, easy aftertaste. (Tasted: August 14, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Distinctively floral, with peppery floral notes and plenty of peach and lemony flavors. Despite the intensity, this remains light-footed, showing a refreshing acidity that weaves in and out.

Lake Chalice Wines, New Zealand
Lake Chalice Wines Winery Image
Named after a lake high in the hills surrounding the Marlborough plains, Lake Chalice Wines grew from a friendship between viticulturist Phil Binnie and winemaker/raconteur Chris Gambitsis. Their ruggedly stony 30-acre Falcon Vineyard in Wairau Valley yields small quantities of intensely flavored fruit that is carefully crafted into a range of delicious, character-filled wines that emphasize depth and length of flavor.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
