A mixed case of 6 bottles, with 4 bottles of Flametree Chardonnay 2019, and 2 bottles of Flametree SRS Walcliffe Chardonnay 2018.
4 x Flametree Chardonnay 2019: Lovely, perfectly judged hit of oak upfront on the nose, with creamy, honeyed fruit aromas. Mouth-filling and with lush fruits balanced by a citrus freshness and creamy oak. A textured yet fine palate adds to the interest. Terribly well balanced. Excellent.
2 x Flametree SRS Wallcliffe Chardonnay 2018: Rich, ripe notes of tropical and stone fruits at the front of the mouth. Super salinity and balance in the middle, and a rush of white peach and grapefruit zippiness at the end. Concentration and length are fantastic. All wrapped in the most sympathetically integrated oak. This is a spectacular wine! Fruit for the Flametree SRS Chardonnay is sourced from a single site, located in the southern part of the Wallcliffe sub-region, south of the Margaret River town site. The fruit from this vineyard comes from old, low yielding Gin Gin vines.
