Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017

“(…).  It’s not difficult to like and/or admire this wine.  (…).”

“79% cabernet sauvignon, 11% merlot, 10% malbec. Mainly grown in the Wilyabrup and Yallingup sub-regions but with some input from Wallcliffe.  It tastes ripe, bold, generous and chocolatey and, tannin-aside, it feels smooth to the touch. It’s not difficult to like and/or admire this wine. Gravel, dark chocolate, pure blackcurrant, mint and tobacco characters have this wine cruising along beautifully. It has the balance, texture and flavour to drink well now, but for those reasons and more it will mature positively into the medium term and beyond. An inviting jubey aspect to the fruit here leads me personally towards the ‘want to drink this now’ side of things.”

“(…).  So refreshing.”

“Mid crimson. Lifted and leafy dark fruit, invitingly fresh. Super-fine tannin texture and a touch of chocolate on the finish but the fruit wins over the winemaking. Chalky and fresh on the finish. So refreshing.”
