Flametree Embers Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Flametree Embers Sauvignon Blanc 2015

WINEMAKING NOTES
This is our first release of a 100% Sauvignon Blanc under the Embers label. We’ve blended fruit from three sub regions, Wilyabrup, Wallcliffe and Karridale. The 2015 whites are some of the most structured and aromatic wines we’ve seen in the past 4 vintages. The last 4 years have been particularly warm, which isn’t consider as being good for preserving grape aromatics or acids. That said, the nights and day time temperatures were cooler in 2015 and the wines certainly reflect this.

Embers Sauvignon Blanc is predominantly tank fermented in separate batches, blended and then held on yeast lees for a few months in order to add greater texture to the mid palate. The Embers Sauvignon Blanc gets a small amount of barrel ferment in French oak, however the wine is a direct expression of Sauvignon Blanc fruit from the 2015 vintage. The three Margaret River sub regions all add something different in flavour and structure.

TASTING NOTES
The nose shows lifted lemon grass, white fleshed stonefruits, lime and red bell peppers. Herbal notes, stone fruits and citrus provide a burst of flavour on the palate with hints of guava, grapefruit and snap pea. Crisp, crunchy and fresh fruit persists with great length and balance. This is a great summer wine that should be enjoyed as an aperitif or with seafood of your choice.
