Flametree Pinot Rose 2018
SPECIAL 6 PACK BUY. Dry, savoury and aromatic rose from Margaret river.
Flametree Wines has had a meteoric rise to become one of the star wineries of the Margaret River wine region. Under the skilled winemaking of Cliff Royle (ex-Voyager Estate) the quality of wines are impressive across the board.
James Halliday … “Flametree, owned by the Towner family (John, Liz, Rob and Annie), has had extraordinary success since its first vintage in 2007. The usual practice of planting a vineyard and then finding someone to make the wine was turned on its head: a state-of-the-art winery was built, and grape purchase agreements signed with growers in the region. Show success was topped by the winning of the Jimmy Watson Trophy with its 2007 Cabernet Merlot. If all this were not enough, Flametree secured the services of winemaker Cliff Royle.”
100% Pinot Noir
Notes from the winemaker: “The Rosé has a distinctive pale orange colour. Aromas of red fruits overlay subtle floral and candied strawberry characters. The palate is deliberately savoury, with moderate weight, soft chalky tannins and dry finish. The lees and wild ferment have provided a nice foil to the lovely red berry fruit of the Pinot Noir. This lovely dry savoury style of Rosé than can be enjoyed throughout the year with a range of Mediterranean dishes or as an aperitif.” 13% alc.
This is a new vintage … review for 2017 … 95 points Jane Faulkner for James Halliday “The colour is such a pale pastel pink with a slight copper blush. And it’s a stunning rose. Crisp and dry with flutters of flavour – the right amount of red berried fruit, spice, some texture too. It’s moreish and savoury. What are you waiting for?”
