Flametree SRS Chardonnay 2019
- Rich, full
- Margaret River
For fans of classic Margaret River chardonnay, it doesn’t get much better than this. This is the reserve wine from Flametree, one of the best producers in the region. It bursts with grapefruit, lemon rind, cashew, struck match and stonefruit. Powerful, complex and long-lived to boot. And all the critics agree as well. Just read what Huon Hooke had to say below...
“Light yellow colour, bright, with a strongly nutty and grapefruity bouquet - invoking new oak and Gingin clone chardonnay. A full-bodied, ample, mouth-filling wine of great presence and generosity. Long, harmonious finish. The grapefruit flavours are concentrated and complex. An utterly superb wine.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
