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.
It's astonishing that Flametree's Cliff Royle can turn out such beautiful chardonnay at the price. His SRS Wallcliffe is even better but more than twice the price. The bouquet is reserved but complex, lightly smoky, touched with passionfruit and grapefruit. It's light to medium-bodied and beautifully balanced, intense and refined with gorgeous flavour and drinkability. Screwcap.

A delicious Margaret River Chardonnay bringing the mouth to water. So good! Wonderfully fresh and captivating in its youth, this is bursting at the seams with interest. Oyster shell, toasted almonds and sour dough get you in the mood. A generous dose of lemons with a tangy sherbet hanging long. Vibrant grapefruit acidity whips up the tail and has you begging for more. Great buying here folks. Drink to five years. Alcohol: 13%; Price: $29.00; Rating: 92 Points; QWine
