Flametree Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018
Individual harvests were crushed, chilled and pressed into tank for a 3-4 day settling. All batches were then racked and warmed before either going into barrel to undergo wild ferment or inoculated using selected yeast stains. 43% of the juice was barrel fermented wild with grape solids, 5% of the barrels were new with the remainder being older, large format oak. A small portion of whole berries were added to the ferment to give further texture and complexity to the final blend.
The nose shows fragrant lychee, lime, lemon grass and stone fruit. The lychee notes and white nectarine provide a burst of flavour on the palate. The grape solids and barrel ferments add nice savoury notes and minerality. Overall a great combination of fruit flavours, fine acidity and a textural finish are the hallmarks of the excellent 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon, Margaret River.
