A lifelong friendship between local winemaking identities lead to the establishment of one of the Margaret River's most successful estates. The Flametree wineworks are located on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay, whence some of the new world's finest Cabernet wines originate. Flametree can lay claim to retaining some of Margaret River's most auspicious vines. Parcels of Cabernet and Merlot grapes are placed into open pot fermenters for several days of cold soak. Fruit is treated to a wild indigenous yeast vinification with gentle plunges and pumpovers, followed by a course of malolactic and a year's maturation in a mixture of seasoned and new French oak barrels.
Deep red in colour with a bright purple rim. Classic Cabernet nose of cassis and blackberry with notes of freshly dusted cocoa and subtle spice. The palate is beautifully concentrated, packed with dark fruits and bitter chocolate characters. A juicy, almost sweet mouthfeel with fine tannins and a savoury finish. Aged in tight grained, quality French barrels, the oak has pulled the fruit into line and provided the framework for a classic Margaret River Cabernet Merlot.
