Flametree Embers Chardonnay 2017

WINEMAKING NOTES
Individual machine and hand harvests were crushed, chilled and pressed into tanks for a 3-4 day settling. All batches were then racked and warmed before either going into barrel or tank to undergo wild fermentation. In 2017 a good portion of juice was fermented with light grape solids. The barrel fermented portion was fermented mainly in older oak, we wanted the fruit to shine through and not be inhibited by oak flavours. In contrast to the other Chardonnays in the Flametree range, 50% of the Embers Chardonnay was inoculated for MLF, giving the wine greater softness and texture.

TASTING NOTES
The nose displays nectarine, pear and melon fruits that combine with honeysuckle notes derived from the older oak and lees. The palate is full flavoured with ripe tropical fruits and butterscotch notes from the MLF. Extended lees contact in barrel and tank has added weight and mouthfeel to the palate. A nice cross section of fruit flavours, texture and hints of creamy lees are the hallmarks of our first Embers Chardonnay.
