Best matched with the following food groups

Flametree S.R.S Cabernet Sauvignon has lifted blackberries, mulberry, plums, earth and dark chocolate dominate the nose and palate at this early stage. Whilst showing plenty of inky dark fruits, violets and bitter chocolate the palate also displays wonderful fruit and oak tannin, the result of 16 months oak maturation. A lovely full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that shows Margaret River Cabernet in all its glory. This vintage will drink beautifully as a young wine, however a wine with this much fruit and extract will also mature wonderfully for the next 15-20 years.

Gold Medal—Decanter World Wine Awards 2013 60 Great Reds—‘Best of the Best Single Vineyard Wines’ – Ben Edwards Wine Companion Magazine [August/September 2013]

“Cliff Royle is a very talented winemaker. Thoughtful in every regard. Like many in the industry, he felt the ‘Reserve’ moniker does little justice to wines that reflect a special character of a region, hence the Sub Regional Series was born.

This single vineyard Cabernet is deeply coloured with a vibrant purple hue; the bouquet is highly expressive with pure cassis, olive and dried tobacco notes in evidence. The palate is supple yet firm with ample fine-grained tannins and the acidity is electric and racy. Beautifully balanced and with a production of only 250 dozen, this will leave many unsatisfied that they simply cannot get enough.”

Under the watchful hand of Cliff Royal this is the second S.R.S. Cabernet Sauvignon released from Flametree and is a classic Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon produced from a fantastic Margaret River vintage. It shows all the perfume and structure that make Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon wines so famous.

Amongst a number of impressive accolades, Cliff was awarded Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine in 2003, was a finalist in the Gourmet Traveller Winemaker of the Year in 2005 and has been a senior judge at the Royal Melbourne and Perth Wine Shows over a number of years. Langton’s Master of Wine, Andrew Caillard, said “Winemaker Cliff Royle is regarded by critics as one of the most gifted winemakers of his generation.”

The fruit for the 2012 Flametree S.R.S. Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the famous Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River, long regarded as the benchmark for Cabernet Sauvignon based wines.
