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: We’ve decided to style our wines more on a perfumed lighter style with greater emphasis on elegance rather than power. The use of soft extraction techniques, cooler ferment temperatures and open fermenters has resulted in a wine with great perfume, dark fruit flavours and fine tannin structure. The palate has plenty of cherries, plums, scorched earth, liquorice and spice. The introduction of more stems and a larger percentage of wild ferment has given the wine greater complexity and added texture. Enjoy now or anytime over the next 5-10 years.
