Tasting Notes

The most recent vintage of the Flametree Shiraz stands out from previous years thanks to Cliff Royle’s team and their thirst for perfecting their wines.

The addition of dried stems, whole bunches and whole berries results in a Shiraz higher in complexity and perfume. More of a medium-bodied red compared to other years. A strong perfumed nose, the Flametree Shiraz brings a palate of cherry, plum and liquorice. A strong and generous wine.



92+ Points Campbell Mattinson , The Wine Front

“It’s an elegant wine, well-ripened, floral and perfumed, and gently sinewy. Margaret River almost never makes ‘big’ or heavy shiraz but this is ever-so-slightly lighter than the norm, though the complexity levels have been elevated as compensation. I like it. It’s not ready to drink right now, it needs a couple of yea ... rs to start showing itself properly; it begs for a touch of age to creep in. Some faces just look better with a crease or two. Balance of fruit-oak-acid-tannin here is impeccable, as is the flourish to the finish. It’s a squeaky clean wine, but an interesting one. Admirable. With a future. Show more Show less
