Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2016

Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2016

WINEMAKING NOTES 
We mixed things up a little this year using some dried stems, whole bunch and some whole berries in the  ferments, the idea was to get some additional perfume, structure and complexity into our Shiraz wines, More medium bodied than previous vintages, Pinot  like winemaking techniques has given us a very different style of Shiraz than past vintages. The whole bunch and sun dried stem parcels were all wild fermented at cooler temperatures than previous vintages,  this partial carbonic maceration introduces a vibrant, spicy red fruit component to the blend.  After pressing the batches were inoculated for MLF and then transferred into used French oak puncheons. After 9 months in oak the batches were blended, and then bottled. 

TASTING NOTES
Soft extraction techniques, cooler ferment temperatures and open fermenters has resulted in a wine with lifted perfume, dark fruit flavours and fine tannin structure. The palate has plenty of cherries, plums, scorched earth, liquorice and spice.  The introduction of stems and a larger percentage of wild fermented batches has given the wine greater complexity and added texture. Enjoy now or anytime over the next 5-10 years.
