2019 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards - Gold

Bright ruby red colour. Up-front dark berries with dark chocolate and subtle spicy undertones. The palate is surprisingly rich and beautifully balanced. Flavours of darker blackberry and cherry with hints of dark chocolate and spicy oak. Can be enjoyed now but can keep for another 3 - 5 years.

The Truth Tree is the translation of the common name in isiXhosa for an Erythrina or Coral Tree. These are indigenous to the Eastern Cape, although they are part of the pea family and related species are distributed worldwide in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Distinctive bright red flowers appear in winter and the tree is quite breathtakingly beautiful.

Food Pairing
Pinotage is an incredible wine, because it is versatile enough to pair across a huge spectrum of dishes from oysters to game to spicy Middle Eastern cuisine. In fact, like Dragon Tree, it loves spices and even chillies. It is gorgeous with slow-cooked duck drizzled with a pomegranate and cardamom gravy and served with potatoes roasted in duck dripping as well as a green salad of bitter leaves.

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.
