Description

The Flametree Winery is located at the gateway to the Margaret River Wine Region on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay, Western Australia. Flametree Wines’ vision is to produce brilliant Australian wines of uncompromising quality and character, as reflected in the 5 red-star rating consistently achieved from James Halliday since 2011. Award-winning winemaker, Cliff Royle, selects exceptional quality fruit from throughout the Margaret River wine region, to produce beautifully hand-crafted wines with unique flavour, structure and depth. The fruit for the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon predominantly comes from the Wilyabrup sub-region. The core of the wine is from Wilyabrup Estate, Fraser Gallop and Ridge Farm along with a small parcel of Cabernet from the Brushwood vineyard on Commonage Road in Yallingup. All vineyards have some form of north-facing aspect, are grown on gravel loam soils and produce moderate cabernet crops with small berries and bunches.

TASTING NOTES

The nose is typically aromatic, showing mulberry, redcurrants and chocolate notes. The palate shows ripe, fleshy varietal Cabernet fruit in the cassis and mulberry spectrum supported by fine chocolatey tannins. Cabernet provides great fragrance, complexity and structure all in the one package. A wine that can be consumed as a young fruit-driven wine or cellared with confidence over the medium to long term.
