Flagstone Music Room Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The faintest hint of basil – all wrapped up in serious, warm, toasty oak.
Palate: The palate is all about chunky, chewy, magically integrated tannin. This rewarding mouth-feel is complimented by concentrated flavours of youngberry, wild mint and blueberry. A blockbuster Cabernet.

Rack of Karoo lamb and pan-wilted garden fresh spinach.

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.

We are inspired by our country, our people and our winelands. That’s why we give our wines special names. My grandmother, Elsie Fraser-Munn was a legendary music teacher and performer. In her Music Room, practice made perfect. Patience, dedication and attention to detail are similarly required to craft great Cabernet. The music on the front label is a beautiful choral piece composed for my grandmother by the renowned South African composer, Peter Klatzow.

in the vineyard : Every year we court disaster with the weather, leaving the grapes to hang long past when it is safe for grapes to be out and about. We just pray each day the next hot, dry, north wind isn’t going to blast it flat and shrivel the berries beyond recognition.
The resultant aromas and flavours of these heroic vineyards are expressed more as complex, ethereal summer fruits like strawberry, cherry and black-ripe youngberry. This density of red berry flavours is framed by herbs like fennel and fresh thyme.
