Hallgarten & Novum Wines doubles its Marlborough portfolio
We have become exclusive distributor for Marlborough’s Lake Chalice Wines in the UK. The family owned and run winery is built upon a foundation of 30 years of winemaking pedigree in New Zealand’s most distinctive region.
We have added 10 wines to ourportfolio, from the three Lake Chalice ranges; ‘The Nest’, ‘The Falcon’ and ‘The Raptor’. Made in the central Wairau Valley by winemaker, Chloe Gabrielsen, who has over 12 years of experience producing award-winning Marlborough wine, taking a boutique approach to winemaking, independently fermenting unique parcels of fruit handpicked from mature, single vineyard vines.
Lake Chalice Wines Brand Manager, Ben Leggett comments; “For a wine brand which has been enjoyed by Kiwis for almost three decades, we’re excited to be able to work with Hallgarten Wines to bring our own little piece of Marlborough to the UK.”
Hallgarten & Novum Wines Portfolio Director, Jim Wilson, comments; “The demand for Marlborough wines continues to be relentless and we felt now was the perfect time to increase our offering from the region by introducing these wines. Lake Chalice Wines comprises a family of professionals from the vineyard to the office, who share an equally deep seeded love of Marlborough and all things wine.”
The Lake Chalice range available from Hallgarten Wines is split into three separate labels:
The Nest: Representing classic Marlborough expressions from a collection of unique sub-regions at an affordable price.
The Falcon: The mainstay and signature of the Lake Chalice portfolio. Expressing signature flavours unique to our vineyards across a wide range of grape varieties.
The Raptor: Consisting of small parcels of unique fruit, sometimes from a single vineyard, that stand out as excellent or superior examples of a particular variety.
Lake Chalice Wines is a proud key sponsor of the Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust, preserving New Zealand’s endangered raptors for over 20 years. New Zealand’s endemic falcon – the ‘Karearea’ – is proudly displayed on every bottle of Lake Chalice wine.
