Two Roads Chardonnay 2016
At Flagstone we aim to make wine that respects our 350 year old winemaking heritage, while always celebrating the magnificence of nature. We want to make gorgeous wines that stimulate your brain as much as they please your taste buds.
The grapes for this wine were picked in February for optimum ripeness. After gentle pressing, the juice was fermented and matured for six months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. Bottled under screwcap to ensure freshness and longevity, this wine can be enjoyed now or carefully cellared for up to five years from vintage.
What’s in a Name?
We are inspired by our country, our people and our winelands. That’s why we give our wines special names. The name Two Roads refers to the Robert Frost poem whose lines appear on the label. This is our winemaking mantra. We question everything with respect and always take the road less travelled.
A complex nose displays floral notes of lemon blossom, bright citrus and hints of cinnamon spice. On the palate, complex citrus and white peach on entry, complimented by delicate notes of cinnamon and vanilla from carefully used oak. This wine is a bright white gold with green tint.
