Let him have the last word with Flagstone’s Last Word
Dad’s pretty much always have the last word, so this Father’s Day give him with exactly that. From its warm ruby-red colour, spicy, toasty oak notes and dark fruit bouquet to its sweet eccentricity and gentlemanly character The Last Word has a Dad feel to it. We make it by weaving the ethereal flavours and aromas of fermentation into the typically dense, complex and tannic structure of our handmade reds. These wines have incredible form, exhibiting the fruit of Pinotage with a note of sweetness that adds a final flourish to a moment.

Old Man’s Blend for Your Old Man
Gift your old man with a bottle of Groote Post’s The Old Man’s Blend range. It came into being in 2001 at the behest of Groote Post’s ‘Old Man’, Peter Pentz, who asked the family to blend him a red wine to enjoy as his winter evening tipple. The enormous popularity of The Old Man’s Blend Red established a Groote Post tradition, with The Old Man’s Blend White subsequently added to the range. The white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Semillon and the red is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc.
