Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Western Australia
Flametree maintain a close working relationship with the most dedicated Margaret River growers. The driving philosophy is to craft wines which express the quality of fruit and uniqueness of provenance, while striking the balance between early approachability, generous flavour and sound structure. Embers is a mostly Semillon wine, it's drying, slatey mineral palate and bouquet is vitalized by a third of Sauvignon Blanc, which adds ripe tropical fruit with a measure of herbaceousness. Drink now alongside papardelle primavera or fresh crustacea.
Selecting the right fruit from good vineyards is a science and an art, the Flametree team aim to isolate and capture those unique characters and flavours from each vineyard block which are most essential to the ultimate style. Each component has its own expression, contributing flavours and personality into the finished wine. Flametree command the quality of fruit to craft two distinct accords of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Embers is slightly dominated by Semillon, the components are treated to a brisk vinification in fermenters and held on yeast lees, infusing the palate with textural richness and contributing greater texture.
Light pale straw colour. Aromatic vegetable and freshly cut fruit bouquet with a touch of floral. Fruit salad and some herbal notes on a fuller style of palate exhibiting grapefruit and citrus flavours, stonefruits and guava in the ripe tropical spectrum add texture and a touch of richness. A flavoursome aperitif style with clean crisp finish that mates well to good seafood.
