Flametree

Western Australia | Margaret River

James' Review

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. Exports to the UK, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Hong Kong.

About

Flametree Wines was catapulted into winemaking folklore after winning Australia's most prestigious wine award the Jimmy Watson Trophy with its first ever red wine, the 2007 cabernet merlot. Proving that this wasn't just good luck the 2008 cabernet merlot was again a finalist in the year's Jimmy Watson trophy taste off. James Halliday's 2010 Wine Companion ranked Flametree Wines in his Top 10 New and Exciting wineries, giving great reviews across the complete range. Recent accolades include winning the trophy at the Margaret River Wine Show for the best sauvignon blanc semillon, no mean feat given the quality and quantity of the wines entered. Winemaker Cliff Royle and his winemaking team are dedicated to producing the very best premium wines from the Margaret River region.
