2022 Flametree Margaret River Shiraz

12 x 750ml
The press release described this as “a superb wine”. No mucking about there. It’s a good mid-level, mid-weight shiraz, polished and sure-footed, plum-driven but with highlights of gravel, euycalypt, twiggy spice and dried herbs. Tannin is fine-grained and nicely tucked into the fruit; it doesn’t interrupt the finish, which is well sustained. Polish and balance are both key features here. Read more

Tasting Notes

Boasts rich blackberry and plum notes, entwined with a touch of black pepper and warm spices. The velvety tannins and lingering finish create a symphony of flavours that lingers on the palate. A true embodiment of Margaret River's terroir, capturing the essence of its sun-drenched vines.

Winemakers Note

This is the second year using a portion of sun-dried stems, 20-30% whole bunch and some whole berries in the ferments; the idea was to get some additional perfume, structure and complexity into our Shiraz wines. More medium bodied than previous vintages, Pinot-like winemaking techniques have given us a very different style of Shiraz than past vintages. 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 9 months in oak the batches were blended and then bottled.
