Let's be honest, our Dad's play an influential role in shaping our life, from a very young age. Subtly, influencing our personalities & steadily weathering our moods & emotions as we grow older. I know my childhood & adolescence was puntuated by my Dad's final say.
On my recent #WineRoutingWithLloyd trip, I discovered Flagstone's Last Word Fortified Wine. And what a perfect fit. And it's only now that I realised that this would make a spirited geture & gift for Father's Day; and here is why.
A warm rub-red colour. Spicy. Toasty Oak Notes & Dark Fruit Bouquets. A Sweet Eccentricity with a Gentleman's demeanour. The Last Word just has a real 'Dad' feel to it. I even got to share a glass of this beautiful wine with my Father at Flagstone Wines! How wonderfully everything comes together.
Made by weaving the ethereal flavours & aromas of fermentation into the typically dense complex & tannic structure of all Flagstone handmade reds. (These wines are known to have an incredible form, exhibiting the fruits of a Pinotage, with a note of sweetness that just adds a final flourish to that special moment.)
A bright red sapphire colour on the edges, flowing into a dark & intense ruby red. With aromas of ripe, dark red fruit, cocoa & toasty vanilla. Wrapped in a warm, spicy oak flavours of cinnamon & nutmeg. In your mouth you get sweet red berries & dried apricots & peaches, whilst the sweet plum fruit compote lingers & ends off with a comforting warm sensation. Imagine this with some chocolate covered figs, fresh biscotti & Gorgonzola cheese.
Sounds delightful now doesn't it?
And guess what? I've got 2 bottles of this beauty to give away for Father's Day so that you can let your Dad have the Last Word too.
