Flametree S.R.S. Wallcliffe Chardonnay

Cliff Royle is the definition of intuitive winemaking, throwing out the recipe to free himself to play with all the fine details in response to the fruits of the vintage. The outcome is a chardonnay that reflects the concentration of Margaret River in a warmer vintage, yet exemplifies earlier picked, lower alcohol energy and taut definition. Well-defined grapefruit and white peach fruit is offset by savoury charcuterie, notes of struck flint and a saline character indicative of its maritime origins. A beautifully crafted Margaret River chardonnay of honed acidity and mouth-filling, finely structured texture. Buy direct from Flametree.
