Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2017

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 the Flametree Shiraz wines.  More medium bodied than previous vintages, Pinot-like winemaking techniques have given 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.

“95 points”

“The notes say that an emphasis has been put on elegance and fragrance rather than power, with cooler ferments and the inclusion of stalks to add complexity. And that is exactly how this wine presents. Medium-bodied, fragrant red/black fruits, spicy stem notes, oak as a background noise rather than the band. Thoughtfully made, and delivered to a T.”
