Lake Chalice have launched a new range as the crown of a multi-tiered portfolio that marries consistent quality to supreme value – always a winning combination, we’ve found. The Plume range looks to bring its own perspective to fine wines, focusing on an attention to detail where an artful blend of simplicity and complexity is wreathed with beauty. Chloe Gabrielsen is the winemaker at the Plume helm:
“2017 was our first interaction with Plume by Lake Chalice, and it was about getting to know the fruit. We are looking to always be expressive, and every year the expression has shown itself in a different way, based on how we feel about the fruit potential. The fruit quality from 2017 was just incredible, and when you have the best fruit, you can almost do anything and nothing at the same time. We really took a step back from interference or moulding and just gave Plume the time and space to show us what it was made of.”
Everything is done with a light touch and minimal intervention, using the very best barrels and allowing the processes to evolve naturally.
