At Flametree Wines, their vision is to produce brilliant Australian wines of uncompromising quality and character, this is reflected in the 5 red-star rating they have consistently achieved from James Halliday since 2011. Award winning wine maker, Cliff Royle, selects exceptional quality fruit from throughout the Margaret River wine region, to produce beautifully handcrafted wines with unique flavour, structure and depth.
Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015
The nose is classically aromatic, showing cassis, violets and blackberry, balanced with notes of freshly dusted cocoa and dark chocolate. The palate is fresh yet concentrated, packed with dark fruits, bitter chocolate and subtle spicy French oak characters.
Individual parcels were put in open fermenters without putting the fruit through a traditional crusher destemmer. A portion of the fruit was also placed in static fermenters and left on skins for extended maceration. After a few days soaking on skins the wild ferment kicked in and we started plunging and doing juice pump-overs for subtle tannin extraction. Extended barrel maturation softens the wines and provides added complexity and structure. After 14 months in 30% new French oak the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot was blended, lightly egg white fined and bottled.
