The Māori translation of Plume, or feather, is Raukura. It is a significant adornment worn by people of high ranking, prestige, or mana. It is not for just anyone. It is special, it is ornamental and should be treasured.
Sit back and savour the rich notes and let the subtle flavours take flight on your palate.
The wine creation utilised many traditional winemaking techniques to enable a true expression of terroir. Made only in years of outstanding harvest and usually bottle aged for release.
Plume Pinot Noir 2017
2017 provided us with a vintage where we were able to provide this exceptional fruit for Plume by Lake Chalice. Sourced from our founding Eyrie Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley on the southern side of the Wairau Plain. The aroma is filled with dark fruits which follow through on the palate and combine with plenty of savoury characters.
Plume Chardonnay 2016
Our fruit for this wine was sourced exclusively from a single vineyard in the Lower Waihopai Valley, Marlborough. This vineyard is meticulously looked after by Peter and Anne Reed. The fruit was hand-harvested and then gently whole bunch pressed to tank before immediately going to barrel. Chardonnay is less work, more play. Aromatic notes of popcorn, roasted hazelnuts and spice are followed through on the palate along with a subtle flinty character. Silky and luscious with a fine acid drive and good length.
