Quoin Rock White Blend 2018

Quoin Rock White Blend 2018

Flinty, stone-fruit and fig-like aromas from the Sauvignon Blanc are complemented by beautiful tangerine characters from the Semillon. Gooseberry and melon characters contribute to a full, rounded creaminess on the palate. This wine has a persistent body with wonderful length and elegance.

An absolutely beautiful wine, perfect on its own, but also the ideal partner to most seafood dishes and pasta.
