Hero Notes:

Flametree announced itself to the world by winning the coveted ‘Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy’ with its first release of this wine. It really shouldn’t have come as such a surprise, with Cliff Royle at the winemaking helm – an experienced but still youthful veteran of fifteen vintages in the region, and already renowned for having a particular eye for detail of place and site. This insight gave Flametree the ‘inside track’ on the best local growers to choose, as well as the pick of its own estate. The result is wine of emerging pedigree and great potential, a wine that always shows well from the moment of opening delivering richly-textured, slightly earthy, black fruit flavours, always tinged with just the right amount of sweetness.
