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.

Super fragrant lemons and grapefruit with white peaches and the right thread of flint in the mix. The palate has a smooth and mineral edge with sleek lemon pith and fine, bright-acidity cut. Very impressive. Drink or hold. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
Chardonnays from this producer have moved into a new zone of consistency and quality. Fits snugly into the modern era of Margaret River and Aussie chardonnay but retains the power and drive that make this area so good. Rating: 93 Points; Ray Jordan; West Australian
