A single vineyard parcel of fruit from the Ellen’s Ridge vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub region of Margaret River.
Lovely lifted Chardonnay aromatics of stone fruit and citrus dominate the nose at this early stage. The palate shows nectarine, lime, lemon and subtle cherry fruits from the Pinot Noir addition.
The Lychee notes and white nectarine provide a burst of flavour on the palate complemented with hints of fresh cut herbs.
The 2016 Chardonnay has a nice balance of fine fruit flavours and tight structure, very much in line with the new wave of modern Australian Chardonnays.
This is a great all season wine with lovely texture and wonderful flavour in the cherry and other red berry spectrum.
Lifted blueberry, plums, liquorice and spice combine to create a soft fruit driven Shiraz style.
The colour and perfume are testament to a fantastic Shiraz vintage.
Our first Cabernet Malbec blend will provide good early drinking and also age well in the short to medium term.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec is a wonderful tribute to the founder of Flametree Wines. The JJ was a barrel selection of our best Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec from the great 2011 vintage.
