Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Margaret River)

Tasting Notes
This is the most serious Embers Cabernet Sauvignon we’ve ever produced and that’s a direct reflection of the quality of the 2018 vintage. The 2018 Embers Cabernet Sauvignon has loads of violets, ripe black fruits with bitter chocolate and cedar notes. This year’s wine is juicier and more concentrated than previous vintages. Flavours of Satsuma plum, blackberry cassis and dark chocolate underpin this super vintage. Unashamedly full of flavour with soft ripe fruits and a fine tannin structure. Perfect for early consumption or short term cellaring now—3 years.

The fruit for Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 wine was largely sourced from three sub-regions of Margaret River, the major portion of the blend from Wilyabrup, with smaller parcels from Wallcliffe and Yallingup. The Wilyabrup portion provides mid-palate generosity, chocolate notes and lovely fine tannins. The Yallingup component gives wonderful colour, juiciness and dark fruit flavours, and the Wallcliffe portion gives beautiful Cabernet perfume and elegance.

2018 was a super vintage in Margaret River. The season began with even budburst after average winter rainfall, this was followed by a mild spring that ensured even flowering and fruit set. A moderate start to summer, with no heat extremes set up the harvest well with all varieties displaying excellent flavour intensity and bright acidity. There was an abundance of Marri blossom which meant bird pressure was practically non-existent whilst all grapes were harvested. In summary the 2018 reds will be remembered as some of the best ever made in our relatively short 50 year history.

Soft extraction techniques and cooler than normal ferment temperatures have resulted in a generously-fruited, fleshy wine with lovely lifted Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics. All batches were fermented separately before being transferred into older French oak barrels to undergo maturation for 12 months. After maturation in barrel the wine was blended, fined, filtered and then bottled.
