Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2017
- Region:Margaret River Western Australia, Australia
- Availability:Victoria and Tasmania
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.
