Established in 2007 by the Towner family, Flametree Wines was created with passion for wine and a vision to become a world recognised winery producing exceptional quality wines with a laid-back style and elegance.
By winning Australia's most well-known and respected wine accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, with their first ever red wine, Flametree Wines has firmly established themselves in the upper echelon of Margaret River wine producers.
Proving that this accolade was not a coincidence and that Flametree was actually deserving of the prestigious award, the next vintage was also a finalist in the following years' show. This unprecedented success has since continued, with many critic reviews and awards.
TASTING NOTES: The nose is typically aromatic, showing mulberry, plum and redcurrant fruits with chocolate and cocoa powder notes. The palate shows ripe, fleshy varietal Cabernet fruit characters finishing with fine, chocolatey tannins. Cabernet provides fragrance and structure; Merlot adds mid-palate weight and some lovely earthy notes; Malbec provides further dark fruit flesh on the palate as well as ripe, sweet tannins; whilst Petit Verdot adds violet and a balanced, dry finish. This medium bodied Cabernet blend will provide good early drinking and also age well in the short to medium term.
BLEND: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 9% Malbec & 6% Petit Verdot.
CELLARING: Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years.
