Flagstone Noon Gun 2012

Flagstone Noon Gun 2012

Intriguing, floral nose of guava, orange zest and apple. The smooth, balanced palate offers honeydew melon with slices of paw paw, a touch of orange peel, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The fruitiness is balanced by a creamy mouth-feel and a zesty crisp lingering finish.

Perfect on its own (a good Jacuzzi wine!), but also excellent with fresh summer salads, roasted free range chicken, or even fish dishes with creamy sauce. Ultimately, it's the versatility of the wine that makes Noon Gun the ultimate everyday lunchtime wine.

in the vineyard : Winemaker Notes
We put an extraordinary amount of care into crafting this quirky blend - which for the past 12 vintages has won numerous awards and a legion of fans around the world for its balance and zesty concentration.

We blend what we believe to be the three best white varieties growing in South Africa today, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. The Chenin Blanc grapes are from quite old, gnarly, dry-grown vineyards in the Swartland. They are naturally in balance and yield a very small, concentrated crop. This gives amazing structure and creaminess to the wine. The Sauvignon Blanc loves our mineral rich soil and cool sea breezes and offers zesty zing with passionfruit and fig flavours with a long, refreshing finish. These grapes hail from various coastal vineyards, including Elim, Elgin and as far north as Lutzville. The Viognier adds an inviting fruity/floral nose and lots of ripe citrus flavours on the palate. We source our Viognier from both warm and cool climates to get both the heady, spicy flavours and enticing floral aromas.
