Flametree ‘Jeremy John’ Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2011
Jeremy John Towner, usually known by his nickname 'Tuna' to most, was a true gentleman of grand presence. Not just because of his height at 6 foot 5 inches, but his character was also always larger than life.
Ever popular with friends and peers, Jeremy attended Christ Church Grammar School and after leaving school attended Sydney University completing a Bachelor of Science (Geology). His passion and belief in "terra firma" resulted in what we now know as Flametree Wines being established in 2007. As affirmation of his faith and reward for his hard work, Flametree won the coveted Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy in 2008.
Jeremy was not only a gentleman but also a family man, that being his highest priority. Always wanting to relax and simply enjoy life with family and friends. He was our father, husband, son, brother and mate. We pay tribute to Jeremy with this wine." The Towner Family.
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. The Cabernet gives the wine wonderful structure and power whilst the malbec contributes flesh and generosity. Classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, black current and dark chocolate are fleshed out with the plum and cherry fruit flavours of the Malbec.
