Flametree ‘SRS Karridale’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017

After 15 vintages making wine in Margaret River you get a feel for the sub regions that are best suited to specific grape varieties.  Rather than go down the traditional Reserve or Single Vineyard path, Flametree decided to pursue something a little different, hence the sub regional theme.  Although there are no officially defined subregions in Margaret River, producers have adopted the John Gladstone proposal.  In 1999 viticultural scientist Dr John Gladstone presented a paper suggesting there should be six sub regions based on climate and soil differences.  The aim with the Flametree Sub Regional Series is to showcase distinctive wine styles from vineyards renowned for growing ultra premium fruit.  They’ve chosen to lead with Margaret River’s strongest varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.  The Sub Regional Series represents the very best varietal wines under the Flametree label, these wines will only be made in the best vintages, volumes will be small and availability very limited.

“A fine wine that embodies the Aristotelean ideal of sass and sophistication across impeccably ripe fruit, an attractive lick of oak, judicious lees handling for textural detail and flavours that run the gamut of herbal, tropical and stone fruits, all careening effortlessly along a rail of bright acidity infused with mineral crunch.”
Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday Wine Companion 2019
