Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2012

Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2012

WINEMAKING NOTES 
All parcels were crushed, chilled, sulphured and given 5-8 days cold soak in a mix of open and static fermenters. Caps were plunged and/or pumped over twice a day. All batches were inoculated with selected Rhone yeast strains or wild fermented; the ferments were controlled at around 26-28 degrees. The wines were inoculated for MLF, pressed off and then transferred into used French and American oak barrels. After 10 months in oak the 2012 Shiraz was blended, egg white fined and bottled in February. 

TASTING NOTES
Lifted blueberry, plums, liquorice and spice combine to create a soft fruit driven Shiraz style. The colour and perfume are testament to a fantastic Shiraz vintage. Soft extraction techniques using open fermenters have resulted in a wine with ripe fruit flavours and fine tannin structure. The palate has plenty of sweet dark fruits and spicy oak flavours. The introduction of a larger percentage of wild fermented batches has given the wine great complexity and texture. The 2012 Shiraz was aged in older oak to preserve fruit flavours. A fantastic second release Margaret River Shiraz, enjoy now or anytime over the next few years.
