Lake Chalice The Nest Merlot 2020 750ml

The fruit was harvested from a number of specifically chosen, naturally low-cropping vineyards from both Marlborough’s Wairau Plain and the Hawke’s Bay winegrowing district.

At our winery, the harvested grapes were held cold for five days for optimum flavour extraction. During the height of primary fermentation, the juice is plunged by hand up to 8 times a day. The wine was kept in contact with skins and tasted daily until the right extraction and balance were achieved then gently pressed. Once settled it was then racked to seasoned French oak where it underwent secondary fermentation (malolactic fermentation). After ageing on light lees the wine was blended, fined, balanced and carefully prepared for bottling.

Appearance: Bright burgundy red
Bouquet: Floral and fruit drove, with ripe red plums and notes of Cassis
Palate: A fleshy fresh fruit-driven palate of juicy plum with a fine powdered-like structure

Cellaring: Enjoy now or cellar for up to 3 years. But you really don’t have to wait to enjoy this Merlot. It’s okay, you can buy another one for the cellar.

Alc: 13%
