James Halliday – Over-delivers with spiced lemon and stone fruit flavours and complexing oyster shell, sea salty notes. It’s fresh and juicy yet there’s texture and refreshing acidity. - Jane Faulkner

About This Wine

WINEMAKING NOTES
Individual machine and hand harvests were crushed, chilled and pressed into tanks for a 3-4 day settling. All batches were then racked and warmed before either going into barrel or tank to undergo wild/inoculated fermentation. Some batches were fermented with higher grape solids to promote a savoury element in the overall blend. The barrel fermented portion was fermented in 3-4 year old puncheons, we wanted the fruit to shine through and not be inhibited by oak flavours. In contrast to the other Chardonnays in the Flametree range, 50% of the Embers Chardonnay was inoculated for MLF, giving the wine greater softness and texture.

TASTING NOTES
The nose displays nectarine, pear and melon fruits that combine with honeysuckle notes derived from the older oak and lees. The palate is full flavoured with ripe tropical fruits and butterscotch notes. Extended lees contact in barrel and tank has added weight and mouthfeel to the palate. A nice cross section of fruit flavours, texture and hints of creamy lees are the hallmarks of a very strong Embers Chardonnay.

Margaret River Wine

In the southwest of Western Australia, the Margaret River wine region is unique in that it is the most maritime-influenced region in all of Australia. The cool Indian ocean breezes come in through the summer to keep the temperatures around the vines steady resulting in an unusually even accumulation of warmth in the growing season. It is also quite dry as interestingly less than 20% of the annual rainfall occurs as the grapes are growing. The region’s climatic factors have been compared to what Bordeaux would be like in a dry season. While the region’s total production is relatively small (3% of Australia’s total wine production), it is responsible for 20% of our premium wine market.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz as well as Bordeaux blends are all very popular red wine options in the region.

For whites, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age worthy Chardonnays are the specialties.
