Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Soft extraction techniques and cooler than normal ferment temperatures have resulted in a generously-fruited, fleshy wine with lovely lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics. All batches were fermented separately before being transferred into older French oak barrels to undergo maturation for 12 months. After maturation in barrel the wine was blended, fined, filtered and then bottled.
The 2016 Embers Cabernet has lifted aromas of violets, ripe black fruits with chocolate and cedar notes. This year’s wine is a little more structured and finer than the more juicy 2015 vintage. Flavours of Satsuma plum, blackberry and chocolate underpin this years wine. Unashamedly medium bodied with soft fruit and a fine tannin structure.
