Flametree Chardonnay 2021
Anyone who thinks vintage doesn’t matter so much should look at the 2020 and 2021 vintages in Margaret River. Both have produced quite different but equally impressive wines. In fact while some might prefer the opulence of 2020, others may gravitate towards the 2021. Flametree’s 2021 chardie is a more linear and precisely crafted chardonnay. Aromas in the pear and citrus spectrum with just a squeeze of grapefruit. The palate is tightly harnessed with finely integrated oak, a crunchy and tingling textured in the mouth with a lifted acidity promoting a long palate. Some nice traces of creamy stone fruit and subtle honeycomb emerge as it opens in the glass.
