Flametree, Chardonnay. 2015 [I3]
Chardonnay has rightfully made a significant come back over the past couple of years and continues to be a product in strong growth for us. I believe winemakers are handling the wines with more sensitivity and giving greater thought to food and wine matching. This 2015 Chardonnay has a wonderful combination of fine fruit flavours and tight structure associated with the new wave of modern Margaret River Chardonnays. Dried pear, grapefruit, melon and fig are supported by subtle French oak. The palate is textured and savoury, a result of wild ferment, solids and different yeast strains. Drink as a young wine or cellar in the short to medium term.
