MORE INFORMATION:
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. Word of mouth is one of the most effective ways to spread news and share a discovery, and it’s how we would like Flagstone’s Viognier to become more widely known. A wine of such exciting substance that you can’t help but tell your friends about it. Conveying this message through word of mouth carries its own ironic twist in that this white wine grape is somewhat of an articulatory challenge and its pronunciation often leaves people tongue tied. At first glance one’s not quite sure if this word should roll, bounce or pop off the tongue, so by naming our Viognier, “Word of Mouth” we make it that much easier to order off a menu. Color: In the glass, this wine is a brilliant white gold color. Bouquet: Aromas of melon, peaches and apricots with a hint of jasmine and sweet pea. Palate: Summer fruit aromas follow through on the palate with a hint of spiciness. Medium bodied with a fresh acidity and lingering aftertaste.

Food Pairing: Viognier is a food wine and it goes brilliantly with all sorts of food, its ample body and wonderful aroma make an unusual and exciting combination. This wine is fantastic with seafood, but also try it with salads, smoked salmon and spicy dishes. A particular favorite pairing is Word of Mouth and steamed mussels in a Marsala coconut broth
