THE SPRING PACK
Wine is a product like no other, it tells the whole story of a region, its climate, the lives of its inhabitants, their taste and their ingenuity. Each wine is different and you will surely be gratified with our Spring selection.
Ernie Els Merlot 2014 - Stellenbosch
The 2014 Ernie Els Merlot abounds with ripe plums, figs and cherry. It is soft and juicy on the entry with a delicate floral expression that follows from nose to palate. Medium bodied and fine, an earthy complexity adds depth, while notes of Swiss chocolate give a luxurious feel. The firm tannins are balanced by a red-berry crunch and a long savoury finish.
Dornier Pinotage 2014 - Stellenbosch
This wine shows black cherry, dark berry and cassis on the nose, with hints of tobacco and nutmeg. The palate shops upfront flavours of ripe plum, vanilla bean, violets and bramble. The wine has a full palate with an elegant freshness and finishes with a complex chalky tannin profile.
Flagstone Word Of Mouth Viognier 2016 - Western Cape
This is a wonderful expression of the little-known grape, Viognier. Aromas of fresh, ripe watermelon and juicy peaches are encased in a delicate hint of spice on the palate. As a medium bodied wine, it can easily be described as fresh yet also complex as it has a beautiful, full flavoured finish.
Word of mouth is one of the most effective ways to spread news and share a discovery, and it’s how we would like Flagstone’s Viognier to become more widely known. A wine of such exciting substance that you can’t help but tell your friends about it.
In the glass, this wine is a brilliant white gold colour with aromas of water melon and peaches and a floral hint. Summer fruit aromas follow through on the palate with a hint of spiciness. Medium bodied with a fresh acidity and lingering after taste.
The christmas PACK
Wine is a product like no other, it tells the whole story of a region, its climate, the lives of its inhabitants, their taste and their ingenuity. Each wine is different and you will surely be gratified with our Christmas selection.
Hilton Ironstone Syrah 2013 - Stellenbosch
Deep plummy ruby; intense meaty, dark berry fruit with good whiff of smoke. Full-ish body and dry, the meatiness follows through, brushed by good acidity and firm dry tannins in support. A distinctive Shiraz.
Mischa Estate Merlot 2014 - Wellington
Mid to deep ruby; black plum aromas with vanilla biscuits and a touch of mocha from oak char. Mid-weight, crammed with dark plum fruit, nice hint of coffee and easy tannins. So well balanced, so good to drink.
Steenberg 1682 Pinot Noir MCC 2014 - Constantia Valley
Pale pink, fresh and savoury with notes of dried herbs and strawberries. A delicate balance between the acidity and creaminess on the palate. The bubbles delight the taste buds and bring the bouquet to the forefront.

The Wine-of-the-Month Club tasters are well-known wine-writers, Cape Wine Masters, or wine-show judges. Most important of all, none is employed by wine producers. So each is free to choose the wine he or she deems best — and to make assessments in the best interests of consumers, of the people who drink wine.
Wines are tasted blind, that is, bottles are covered and coded before tasting. So the judges are not influenced by the design of a wine bottle’s label, or the advertising claims made by the producer, or even the reputation of the winemaker. They look for one thing and one thing only. And that is simply quality in the glass
