Flagstone “Dragon Tree” Cape Blend 2016, Western Cape, South Africa
Winemaker Bruce Jack, describes the Dragon Tree as his “underground revolution wine”. Inspired by a trip to Gigondas, Bruce blends four varieties to lend the wine ripe fruit power, spice and a firm structure. A cult wine with over 30 awards since its 2000 launch.
This warm and rich, ruby red wine shows great complexity on the bouquet. There is a mixture of rich dark fruit, cigar box and minty aromas with the wood well balanced. Sweet and spicy undertones give this wine great depth. This wine is well balanced on the palate showing fresh and crisp acidity, with an explosion of fruit on a lingering finish.
