Flagstone Winery Flagstone Truth Tree Pinotage
Pinotage () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


Appearance: Bright ruby red. Bouquet: Up-front dark berries with dark chocolate and subtle spicy undertones. Palate: The palate is surprisingly rich and beautifully balanced. Flavours of darker blackberry and cherry with hints of dark chocolate and spicy oak.

Pinotage is an incredible wine, because it is versatile enough to pair across a huge spectrum of dishes from oysters to game to spicy Middle Eastern cuisine. It is gorgeous with slow-cooked duck drizzled with a pomegranate and cardamom gravy and served with potatoes roasted in duck dripping as well as a green salad of bitter leaves. It’s also an absolute winner with a rare fillet of kudu and parsnip mash.
