Flagstone Writer's Block Pinotage, Western Cape

Flagstone Writer's Block Pinotage, Western Cape

Intense concentrated aromas of wild blueberry and ripe cherry are supported by smoky, spicy undertones. On the palate, this wine is ripe and generous; blackberry and plum flavours shine through, yet are complemented by the subtle toasty oak and hints of white truffle and chocolate. The grapes come from the gently sloping foothills of the Bottelary Range; hand-picked, they are fermented in traditional open-top fermenters using the natural yeast present on the grapes, then barrel-matured in mostly new French and American oak barrels.
