Flagstone Poetry Merlot 2019

This warm, rich ruby red wine shows great complexity on the nose. There is a mixture of dark red fruit, cigar box and mint aromas with well balanced wood. Sweet, spicy undertones give this wine great depth.

Poetry is about paired-down words, making, forming, creating. It is art, the essence of language, meaning a fundamental creative act using language. Accomplished poetry is a distillation of language so that meaning shines through. Powerful poetry is utter, it pulls no punches and is not concerned with excuses. It celebrates the joy and highlights the natural sadness of our human condition, poetry eulogises the cycle of nature.

Food Pairing
This wine pairs harmoniously with ostrich fillet in red wine reduction on a wild mushroom risotto.

The Winery
Flagstone is an icon of innovation within the formidable Accolade Wines’ portfolio. The inspiration for these award-winning wines comes from vastly different places but what is common to all of them is that the creative lights went on. The winemakers thrive on the Flagstone methodology – while vines need to be pruned, ideas must be left to grow wild. The end result is more creative expression than mere harvest.
