Golden run for Flametree Wines 2016 SRS Chardonnay

Best Chardonnay in Australia

Our 2016 SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay continues to be recognised as one of the best chardonnays, arguably one of the best wines, in the Australian wine shows. With grapes sourced from the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, this amazing Chardonnay has now taken out eight Trophies and five gold medals.

The remarkable run for the 2016 SRS Chardonnay began at the Sydney Royal Wine Show with Gold and Trophies for Best Chardonnay and Best Wine judged by the International Guest. This was followed by Gold and six trophies, including Best Wine of the Show at the Perth Royal Wine Awards.

The Royal Adelaide Wine Show awarded the SRS Chardonnay Top Gold and a Gold Medal was also claimed at the recent Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. The fifth Gold Medal was also awarded at last week’s Langtons Margaret River Wine Show.

The consistent high quality of this wine was also recognised at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards when Flametree Wines was awarded a Consistency of Excellence Medal which is awarded to an individual wine that is able to achieve a gold medal at three different Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. This was achieved by Flametree’s 2014, 2015 and 2016 SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay.

This is a remarkable accomplishment for a winery that was established only 10 years ago in 2007 and has proven itself one of the most consistent producers. At the heart of this consistency is Flametree Wines fairly unique position in that it does not own any vineyards, making the decision to partner with established vineyards throughout the Margaret River region to take advantage of the soil conditions and climates that are unique to each sub-region within Margaret River. This has led to a period of sustained success across a range of varieties.

Our 2016 SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay was awarded the following trophies:

Royal Sydney Wine Show 2017:

  • Trophy - Best Chardonnay (THE A P John Coopers Perennial Trophy for Best Chardonnay)
  • Trophy - Best Wine judged by the International Guest Judge

Royal Perth Wine Show 2017:

  • Trophy - Best Chardonnay
  • Trophy - Best WA White table wine
  • Trophy - Best single vineyard red or white varietal
  • Trophy - Best white table wine
  • Trophy - Best WA Wine
  • Trophy - Best Wine of the Show

Flametree’s SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay has proven a consistent performer rating 95 points and higher with James Halliday since 2010. The 2014 vintage was rated 2015 Wine of the Year by Philip Rich, Australian Financial Review, was rated 98 points from JamesSuckling.com and appeared in the Top 10 of his 2015 Top 100 Wines of the World.
