Flagstone Noon Gun 2003

Zippy, refreshing, citrus fruit aromas with a twist of cool mint on the nose. The palate combines body, racy structure and refreshing flavours of lemon zest, orange and the florality of apple blossom.

in the cellar : Blending our Noon Gun each year is a like trying to paint a serene landscape with brightly coloured paint. Each component has been so carefully fermented and cared for that each has it’s own wonderful, attention-demanding character. Somehow we have to coax these spirited, individualistic expressions of the land into team players.

We do this by working harder in the vineyard and each year learning more about how each vineyard block reacts to the pressures of climatic stress.

We want to create a wine that could not be made in any other cellar – it must have a special Flagstone character.We do this by keeping our ferments small-scale and by pushing each ferment to the limits of its quality potential. No wine is considered for Noon Gun unless it is able to stand alone as a characterful, high quality, individual wine.
