Flametree Cellar Door and Winery is located on the picturesque shores of Geographe Bay, at the gateway to one of the world's great wine producing regions; the Margaret River Wine Region.

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.

WINEMAKING NOTES: The 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc was tank fermented in separate vineyard batches, blended and then held on yeast lees for a few months in order to add greater texture to the mid palate. 10% of the 2016 Embers Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in French oak, this would normally only be reserved for our SRS SB however we decided not to make SRS SB in 2016. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled in August.
