Flametree S.R.S. Wallcliffe Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
Beautifully textured and skilfully crafted, 2012 is confirmation that Flametree is now securely in Margaret River’s chardonnay A-league. The inherent presence of Gin Gin clone chardonnay from old, low yielding vines in this warm season is perfectly energised by malic acidity. White peach succulence is offset by zesty grapefruit and crunchy green apples. Oak assumes an understated support role, leaving the textural structure to solidsy, wild barrel fermentation.

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Cliff Royle is the definition of intuitive winemaking, throwing out the recipe to free himself to play with all the fine details in response to the fruits of the vintage. The outcome is a chardonnay that reflects the concentration of Margaret River in a warmer vintage, yet exemplifies earlier picked, lower alcohol energy and taut definition. Well-defined grapefruit and white peach fruit is offset by savoury charcuterie, notes of struck flint and a saline character indicative of its maritime origins. A beautifully crafted Margaret River chardonnay of honed acidity and mouth-filling, finely structured texture. Buy direct from Flametree.
