Black Flag Winemakers SA Chardonnay 2018

Combination of 2 blocks from the Limestone Coast, Mount Benson.
Slight straw tinge in the glass with a hint of the same coming through on first sniff which sounds bad but is somewhat alluring. Puffs of strawberry sherbert, stonefruits and Orange Rind lead to a ripe but tight mid palate with a handful of astringency tightening it up and adding length. It’s not packed with fruit but it’s generous and inviting and when served nice and cold should be widely pleasing.

About Black Flag Winemakers

A collaboration between Virgin Wines in the UK and ourselves, Black Flag has enabled the micro batch, innovative and carefree approach of The 5OS Project to spread its wings beyond our stores. Whilst not technically for sale outside of the UK, we’ve held back a few cases here and there to showcase/show off.

This is essentially our ‘Home Brand’. We make these wines ourselves and farm out others to mates with the intention to create a range of wines that have heaps of drinkability but not at the expense of varietal, regional and vintage characteristics. They should also look the part, embracing the talent of the respective artists whilst encouraging them to find their own beat.


Aromatics: Fruit forward with ripe stone fruits
Palate: Super relaxed and packed with riper fruits
Finish: Balanced finish with a lick of oak
Cellaring: Drinking great now and 4-5 years after bottling
