Flagstone Treaty Tree Reserve red blend 2015 This wine is named after Cape Town’s ancient Treaty Tree still standing in Woodstock. In 1509 this wind-sculptured Milkwood witnessed the massacre by local Khoi San of 64 of d’Almeidas infamous, battle-hardened Portuguese marines, who had foolishly abducted a Khoi San baby and attempted to take the infant back to their ships waiting in Table Bay. Then in 1806 a Peace Treaty was signed beneath its boughs after the British forces defeated the Batavian Republic at the Battle of Blaauwberg. This wine is crafted passionately with food in mind – We want the wine to make the food look good and add to the enjoyment of the whole dining experience. We have blended the wine to be at once layered and complex, but very drinkable. Colour Deep ruby red with garnet rim. Bouquet On the nose summer fruits like strawberry, cherry and black-ripe youngberry, cassis, fennel and the faintest hint of basil. Palate The serious, creamy palate is complemented by concentrated flavours of black cherry, wild mint, blueberry and dark chocolate. Food Pairing This Bordeaux blend pairs well with any beef or game bird dishes, like rosemary braised lamb shanks or a hearty venison pie!
