Welcome Yume Wines

This month we welcome WA based natural wine producer Yume Wines to our portfolio.

Winemaker Lou Chalmer has developed quite a following over recent years with her range of natural wines and Ambrosias.

Yume Wines have evolved as a direct result of Lou’s time in [and love of] the hospitality industry combined with her studies as an environmental scientist.
All wines are ‘natural wines’, produced from five different vineyard sites across Western Australia with all growers committed to Lou’s philosophies.
Fruit quality is the key to these wines, first and foremost all growers follow organic practices as a minimum, even if not certified, and vineyards are unirrigated.
All fruit is hand harvested and the wines are unfined, unfiltered and there are no additions other than minimal sulphur.

The two red wines currently available, 2021 Merlot Rose [Albany] and 2021 Cabernet Franc [Mt Barker], are a great introduction to Yume Wines .
Made strictly according to Lou’s high standards, the wines are clean, well made and expressive of their varieties.
Lou’s aim is to produce wines that are immediately enjoyable with longevity.

There is little doubt that natural wines have been and will continue to be one of the major growth segments of the wine industry and winemakers such as Lou Chalmer are at the forefront of this movement locally.

Lou is both talented and passionate with clear objectives as to what she wants to achieve and why.

We look forward to introducing her range to our portfolio.
