Product Description

Lifted citrus, kiwi fruit and stone fruits dominate the nose at this stage. The colour is pale straw with a green hue. Lemon blossom, stone fruit, passionfruit and citrus are the dominant fruit flavours in this year’s wine. The palate is enhanced with a touch of spicy barrel ferment. Fine, long and crisp the palate also shows citrus, nectarine and gooseberry flavours. Extended lees contact has given the wine some added texture and a long finish. Fine fruit flavours and fresh acidity give the wine lovely focus, these are hallmarks of the 2012 SBS.

Majority of the fruit is sourced from growers within the Margaret River Wine Region. We also select small batches from Frankland River in the Great Southern of Western Australia.
Each of these vineyards has its own terrior or site conditions like aspect, micro-climate and type of earth, therefore producing fruit with its own individual characters and flavours.
To be able to single out and choose from the regions' most exceptional vineyards gives Flametree the benefit of capturing the unique characters and flavours from each vineyard block.
Within the Margaret River wine region there are several sub-regions, some of which produce certain varieties better than others. It is generally accepted that Wallcliffe is renowned for Chardonnay, Karridale for Sauvignon Blanc and Wilyabrup for Cabernet Sauvignon.

"Margaret River is my winemaking heartland and after 15 vintages I've established a pretty good understanding of what works and what doesn't.

This is reflected in my philosophy that if you get the right varieties planted on the right sites you're well on your way to making fantastic wines.

Selecting premium parcels of fruit from the diverse sub regions within Margaret River allow me to blend more complex and interesting wines."
