Flagstone Word of Mouth Viognier 2021

Flagstone Word of Mouth Viognier 2021

R140,00

This is a wonderful expression of the little-known grape, Viognier. Aromas of fresh, ripe watermelon and juicy peaches are encased in a delicate hint of spice on the palate. As a medium bodied wine, it can easily be described as fresh yet also complex as it has a beautiful, full flavoured finish.

About the Wine Estate

We’ve been making Viognier longer than anyone else in South Africa, our first commercial vintage was in 2001, and we’ve made it almost every year since then, but every year we felt it wasn’t quite good enough to bottle on it’s own, so we would blend it into our Noon Gun. 2008 was the first time we felt confident that we had produced a Viognier worth bottling on its own. This restrained, floral wine with excellent balance, won the Best White Wine Award at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. What’s in the name: 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.
