Flametree Margaret River Shiraz 2016
An enjoyable Margaret River Shiraz.
Dried stems, whole bunch and whole berries were used to build additional perfume the tech notes tell me. Some wild fermentation, some carbonic with 9 months in French oak.
A spicy sucker, the pepper just lingers. It's finely dusted across the mouth and almost refuses to leave. An array of red berries and cherries make a play for the charm factor. Whiffs of mulberry too. Black earth takes a back seat with fine woodsy spice before that pepper washes through and holds on long.
Drink now to five years.
