Flagstone Longitude 2009

On the nose there is an explosion of plums and dark berries. Spicy undertones and hints of crushed cashew nuts and fresh mint gives this wine dimension. The palate is all about silky tannins and length. Bright flavours of plum and berries combined with the subtle tannins, makes this a smooth wine on the palate. It finishes with unexpected power and an explosion of chocolate that lingers.

Carpaccio of springbok.

in the vineyard : Our ancient soils and equable, warm climate happily conspire to grow soft-structured, juicy red wines that taste different from the rest of the world. The essence of our Longitude is painstaking blending. It must feel soft, but have intriguing; lingering tannin and flavour, and it must offer unbeatable value for money.

The building depicted on the front label is the Time Ball Tower, which stands above our barrel maturation tunnel. In olden times every ship’s captain kept a beady eye on the ball, which used to drop down the mast at exactly noon every day. He could then check the accuracy of his chronometer and be able to calculate Longitude more accurately at sea.
