TASTING NOTES

The nose on the 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon shows plenty of varietal fruits in the kiwi fruit, lemon grass, passionfruit and lime spectrum.  Semillon’s citrus and floral notes are complemented by the tropical passionfruit aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc.  The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a versatile wine that could be enjoyed as an aperitif or with a wide range of fresh, light dishes.

WINEMAKING

The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was picked at low potential alcohol, capturing fine high-note aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and good acid structure. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc juices were fermented under cool conditions using specially selected yeasts to ensure the varietal characters are accentuated. The Embers SBS is fermented without the use of oak allowing a pure fruit expression. After blending, the wine was lightly fined, filtered and bottled.

VINEYARDS

The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a blend from three vineyards in the Karridale sub-region and one Semillon vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. Sourcing fruit from several vineyards and sub regions enables us to create wines with a range of fruit flavours and then ultimately blend more complex and interesting wines. These vineyards, in the cooler southern part of Margaret River, have a history of producing fine, fruit driven, aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blends.

2019 VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The 2019 growing season began with a late budburst after a relatively cold winter. The cool, windy spring that followed resulted in some uneven flowering and fruit set. We experienced a significant rain event mid- January that caused some disease pressure before some fine but mild weather got vintage underway. There was a complete lack of Marri blossom leading up to and during harvest which meant that bird pressure was extreme and bird-netting was absolutely vital this season. Whilst 2019 was certainly a challenging vintage across the region, Flametree was able to produce some very impressive wines (whites in particular), given the additional efforts and attention to detail in its vineyards
