Tasting Notes

A delicate blend of fruit parcels from different varietals, this is an expressive and opulent wine from the team at Flametree.

Made up of a blend between Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (30%), Malbec (9%) and Petit Verdot (6%) results in an aromatic and ripe rd wine. On the palate come flavours of plum, mulberry and chocolate with an extra fruit kick from the addition of Merlot. The Malbec acts to round out and balance the body giving this red a medium body and a dry finish.

“The old Brachychiton acerifolius in full bloom is quite a thing to see. Red and black fruit, cocoa, aniseed and violet. Medium bodied, fine-grained tannin, lovely flow and flavour, and while perhaps not the most concentrated of wines, it does feel effortless and has a long clean finish, closing with cool acidity and a slide ... of gravelly tannin. Very good now, though perhaps a little better with a couple of years under its belt. Show more Show less
