At Flagstone their winemakers aim is to make wine that respects their 350 year old winemaking heritage, while always celebrating the magnificence of nature.
Shiraz grows like it wants to fly away. And the cautious farmer will mutter that nothing good will come from such a wild thing. But find the soil and climate to balance this effervescent nature, and you have the chance of making something beautiful.
Flagstone Wines are inspired by our country, our people and our winelands. That’s why they give their wines special names. They hand-pick their delicious grapes in the quiet, cool of early morning. Lovingly tendered fermentation takes place in open top fermentors, using ancient wine crafting methods. This ensures delicious, age-worthy wine with a silky structure and a brooding, mysterious nature, capable of surprising you with its power and energy – a real Dark Horse!
Dark, rich plummy colour
Complex combination of dark fruits, white pepper, dark chocolate and a hint of mint supported by subtle spicy undertones.
The complexity on the nose flows over to the palate. The wine is big and round on entry with silky smooth tannins. Rich, ripe fruit on the back palate combined with a well-balanced acidity is responsible for a lingering finish and rounds off a perfectly balanced wine.
