The Flametree is an Australian native tree that provides a spectacular display of flowers. However it only blooms if the conditions affecting climate, soil, frost, wind and place of planting are in harmony. Perfume, structure and elegance are the three essential elements to produce beautifully crafted and distinct wines. These are represented by the three leaves in the Flametree logo. By winning Australia's most well-known and respected wine accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy, with their first ever red wine, Flametree Wines quickly captured the attention of wine media, trade and consumers. A five star rating in James Halliday's definitive Australian Wine Companion since 2013 ranks Flametree Wines in the top 5% of all of Australia’s wineries.
The 2017 Cabernet Merlot is very aromatic, showing mulberry, plum and cassis together with dark chocolate notes. The palate shows ripe, fleshy varietal Cabernet fruit characters finishing with fine, soft tannins. Cabernet provides fragrance and structure; Merlot adds mid-palate weight and lovely earthy notes; Malbec provides further dark fruit flesh. This year’s Cabernet Merlot will provide good early drinking and also age well in the short to medium term.
