Flagstone : Trust Your Taste
Velvet Red Blend 2014

Velvet Red Blend 2014

You know something interesting is about to happen when you peer into the deep ruby red colour of this wine. 

Winemaker’s Notes

On the nose you encounter alluring top notes of cinnamon and spice. These dance above a decadent concentration of intense dark red berries like mulberry and blueberry. Underlying this is the dark, ripe aroma of soft black plums. But nothing really prepares you for the velvety tannin, the flavour burst of red berry and cherry on the palate. You savour and swallow and you are rewarded with an intriguing, moreish hint of smooth dark chocolate.
