High flying Pinot at a rock bottom price! We reckon Lake Chalice The Falcon Pinot Noir is right up there with the Pinot bargain buys of the year!
A Gold medal winner at the NZ International Wine Show. A Gold medal winner at the Sydney International Wine Competition. Rated in the Top 100 wines of the Sydney International Wine Competition.
Double Gold, Top 100 rated Marlborough Pinot for $14.99?! It’s what we like to call cheep-cheap-cheep – but only in price. There ain’t nothin’ else cheap about it. This is a wine that looks and tastes like a Pinot twice the price.
It also got thumbs up from Michael Cooper (Master of Wine) – writing for Winestate magazine Coops called it “Priced sharply, this youthful red was grown mostly in the Eyrie Vineyard, in the Waihopai Valley, and barrel-aged for eight months. Deep ruby, it is fragrant, full-bodied and supple, with cherry and plum flavours, showing good depth, well-integrated oak and fresh acidity. Best drinking 2020+.” When he said price sharply – he mentioned a $19 price tag!
These guys are the proud sponsors of the Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust, which is why you’ll find the Karearea (NZ falcon) slapped on all of their labels.
If you’re looking for that Pinot quaffer for winter – look no further. A little birdie at Lake Chalice tells us this 2017 is selling out fast, in fact they’ve already got the newer 2018 vintage ready to rock ‘n’ roll. Hook in with absolute confidence on this one!
