Lake Chalice Botrytised Riesling

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
The 2005 vintage was made from botrytis-affected bunches, late-picked in May at 38 brix. Deep gold, with plentiful sweetness (140 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has strong, lemony, gently honeyed flavours and crisp acidity. Ready.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage was made from individually selected, late-harvested bunches of botrytis-affected grapes in the Falcon vineyard. Light-to-medium yellow/green, it is full-bodied (13 per cent alcohol), fresh and very youthful, with strong lemon, lime and honey characters and a slightly oily richness. It needs time; open 2004+.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Tasted as a tank sample, the 1999 vintage (not rated) looked excellent. Rich lemon, lime and honey scents lead into a weighty, concentrated Marlborough wine with a lovely interplay of strong, ripe Riesling flavours and botrytised-derved honey characters.
