Flametree Chardonnay 2018
Flametree Chardonnay 2018 is a high quality Margaret River Chardonnay offering gorgeous combination of fruit, structure and finesse associated with southern Margaret River Chardonnays. Nectarines, pear, citrus, fresh fig flavours supported by some subtle french oak and more-ish texture (wild ferment & lees stirring). This is fabulous drinking at a very modest price.
Flametree Wines Cellar Door and Winery is located on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay, at the gateway to one of the world’s great wine producing regions – the Margaret River Wine Region.
Established in 2007 by the Towner family, Flametree Wines is a proud team, committed to producing consistent, distinctive Margaret River wines while building on long term, loyal brand advocates through memorable wine experiences.
By winning Australia’s most well-known and respected wine accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, with their first ever red wine, Flametree Wines has firmly established themselves in the upper echelon of Margaret River wine producers.
Proving that this accolade was not a coincidence and that Flametree was actually deserving of the prestigious award, the next vintage was also a finalist in the following years’ show. This unprecedented success has since continued, with many critic reviews and awards.
Majority of the fruit is sourced from growers within the Margaret River Wine Region. We also select small batches from Frankland River in the Great Southern of Western Australia.
Each of these vineyards has its own terrior or site conditions like aspect, micro-climate and type of earth, therefore producing fruit with its own individual characters and flavours.
To be able to single out and choose from the regions’ most exceptional vineyards gives Flametree the benefit of capturing the unique characters and flavours from each vineyard block.
Within the Margaret River wine region there are several sub-regions, some of which produce certain varieties better than others. It is generally accepted that the cooler southern area is renowned for Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, where the northern areas are for Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Margaret River is my winemaking heartland and after 15 vintages I’ve established a pretty good understanding of what works and what doesn’t.
This is reflected in my philosophy that if you get the right varieties planted on the right sites you’re well on your way to making fantastic wines.
Selecting premium parcels of fruit from the diverse sub regions within Margaret River allow me to blend more complex and interesting wines.”
