With a reserve price of R1500 for a case of six, the bidding for the sought-after wine, attracted interest from local and international buyers. Considering that red wines performed particularly well at this year’s auction, The Flagship echoed the same result as it fetched a remarkable price of R800 per 750ml bottle – double the price of when it was first released.
Group Sales & Marketing Executive, Jeff Gradwell comments: “The price achieved for The Flagship gives clear evidence of our capacity to produce wines of superior quality that are able to age over an extended period. At Stellenbosch Vineyards we aim to create wines that bears testimony to our philosophy of excellence and elegance. Knowing that our icon wine is held in such high esteem is an inspiration for our winemaking team to continue on the path of excellence, producing world-class wines with a true sense of terroir.”
