Country: Australia, Margaret River
Tasting Notes: SRS Chardonnay is in my opinion the best Chardonnay made to date under this label and may even be the best Chardonnay made at Flametree Wines. The nose shows tight citrus and dried pear, complex sulphide notes and slight French oak aromas, the result of 12 months aging in barrel. The SRS Chardonnay also has some complex sulphides in the struck match/popcorn spectrum; this is a result of a wild ferment with high solids. These sulphides contribute a lovely savoury oyster shell or saline character, to give the wine greater complexity andcomplement modern food flavours. After 12 months in the finest French oak the wine was fined with milk, filtered and bottled in February 2015.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
