Flagstone Launches Limited Edition ICE

Flagstone launches its contemporary sweet, Sauvignon Blanc dessert wine, succinctly named ‘Ice.’

Housed in a slim 375ml bottle with an ice-white wax seal and adorned with a frozen Sauvignon Blanc leaf, Flagstone Ice’s packaging is designed for a high-fashion market that appreciates a brand that recognises and embraces global trends in stylish design.

Crafted to be served over ice, this wine is a fresh and exciting honey colour with a luxurious mid-palate and a bracing, tangy finish. A bright embellishment for those moments when conversations plumb interesting depths and delve into concentrated, syrupy-sweet topics. Ice is that little twist of sophistication that Gallic appetites insist on to wrap up communal occasions.

Used to enhance dessert, Flagstone Ice’s vivacity brings balance to succulent sugars, acting as discerning refreshment between bites. A drink that invigorates the mouth so that each spoonful is as delightful as the first.

Flagstone Ice is crafted from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the
slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. The peduncles of each bunch are pinched with a pair of pliers, this dehydrates the grape bunches by preventing water from reaching them, concentrating the sugar, acid and flavour of each berry.

This wine is an elegant signature at the end of an evening, a personal and distinctive note, the nip that concentrates the experience.

    Please can you advise as regards the vintage, the price, whether it’s only available at the cellar, or where it might be on sale in Cape Town’s southern suburbs?

        Sounds very interesting. Are you having any media tastings of this?  We are great advocates of sweet dessert wines and would love to write about it in MENU our on-line publication.  Lynne and John Ford, MENU
