Description

The grapes for the Verum Chardonnay are cool fermented for 15 days, 10% in American Oak and the remainder in stainless steel, before undergoing a further 6 month period in tank prior to bottling.  The nose has subtle toast and vanilla with lovely integrated tropical fruit characters.  On the palate the wine exhibits richness but also depth and balance. The diligent use of oak supports rather than dominates the stone and orchard fruit, with the refreshing acidity complimenting the cool climate style.  In a nutshell, extremely enjoyable!


Patagonia is Argentina’s most southerly wine region and for wine makers it offers a cooler climate, numerous hours of sun and abundant water.

2020 Flametree Chardonnay, Margaret River

Chardonnay

The Flametree Chardonnay is beautifully balanced, displaying power and elegance in equal measure, plenty of vibrant citrus and stone fruit flavours and supportive oak courtesy of 9 months barrel ageing.  This is delicious now but will continue to develop for a couple of years.

2019 Bordeaux Blanc Sec, Chateau Saransot-Dupre

Semillon/Sauvignon

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!
