Flametree Shiraz 2017
Wine making techniques have resulted in a wine with lifted perfume, dark fruit flavours and fine tannin structure. The palate has plenty of cherries, plums, scorched earth, liquorice and spice. Enjoy now or anytime over the next 5-10 years.
They mixed things up a little this year using some dried stems, whole bunch and some whole berries in the ferments. The whole bunch and sun dried stem parcels were all wild fermented at cooler temperatures than previous vintages, this partial carbonic maceration introduces a vibrant, spicy red fruit component to the blend. After pressing the batches were inoculated for MLF and then transferred into used French oak puncheons. After nine months in oak the batches were blended, and then bottled.
