Accolade Wines feels there is a market in the US for Flagstone

Accolade Wines has launched Flagstone wines in the US.

Three of the South African winery’s signature blends and a Viognier will join Accolade's US portfolio, Accolade said yesterday (20 March). “We think there is a tremendous market opportunity for these South African wines in the US,” an Accolade spokesperson said.

The releases are:

  • The 2011 Noon Gun, US$14 per bottle, a white blend of 45% Chenin Blanc, 29% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% Viognier, 5% Nouvelle
  • The 2012 Longitude, $14, a red blend of 38% Shiraz, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Malbec
  • The 2009 Dragon Tree, $18, a red blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Shiraz and 27% Pinotage
  • The Rumour Mill, $18, made with 100% Viognier

Accolade also distributes Flagstone in Canada, the UK and other parts of Europe, a spokesperson for the company told just-drinks.

In December, Accolade said it was moving its North America HQ to Napa, California.
