Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Two thirds Sauvignon Blanc, the balance of Semillon, are sourced from good vineyards in the Wilyabrup and Karridale subregions of Margaret River. Parcels are selected on the basis of the desirable characteristics that they can bring to the final wine. Wilyabrup contibutes lovely lifted tropical aromatics whilst Karridale makes for a fine and elegant palate structure. An invigorating, light style of white that's refreshingly unwooded and unoaked, with a touch of sweetness to achieve a lovely gentle finish, food friendly and ideal for all occasions.
The Flametree is a magnificent native Australian, a spectacular sight to behold, it only comes into full flower when all conditions are favourable. The same is true of winemaking, to produce the finest, all elements must come together at the right time. The team at Flametree select exceptional fruit to produce beautifully handcrafted wines with great depth and fine structure. The operation embraces a devoted yet laid back approach, whenever you enjoy a bottle of Flametree it is a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are fermented to cultured yeast strains and bottled immediately to preserve the wine's vibrant fruit. A small portion of oak ferment Semillon is included for complexity.
Pale straw colour with a green hue. Fresh, tropic fruit salad with lifted grassy notes on the bouquet. Lemon blossom, stone fruit and herbs are the dominant characters. The palate is enhanced by a touch of spicy barrel ferment. Fine, long and crisp the palate also shows citrus, nectarine and gooseberry flavours. Extended lees contact has given the wine some added texture and a long finish. Fine fruit flavours and fresh acidity are the hallmark.
