Flametree chardonnay 2015 ($27)

Fits snuggly into the modern era of Margaret River and Aussie chardonnay, but retains the power and drive that makes this area so good. Nutty melony aroma with a little grapefruit. The palate is already showing a degree of complexity but the fruit is pure and pristine. Lovely wine for drinking over the next few years.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 4 Years

Flametree S.R.S. Wallcliffe chardonnay 2015 ($65)

Cliff Royle continues to raise the bar with his chardonnays, especially at the super premium end with this marvellous wine sourced from around Wallcliffe. Tasty oak infused into the white peach and grapefruit characters. A little struck match and a flinty gun metal character. Extraordinary length and persistence.
SCORE 97/100 CELLAR 8 years

Flametree S.R.S. Wilyabrup cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($65)

Such an exotic wild berry and blackcurrant character swirls up from the powerful aromas of this Wilyabrup cabernet sauvignon. The palate is tightly wound with leafy black olive and black fruit characters supported by fine grained French oak and firm fine tannins. The length and power in the palate really step up in this classy cabernet.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 10 years
