Quoin Rock Shiraz 2016

Quoin Rock Shiraz 2016

A perfect expression of this versatile varietal. Spice, plum, casis on the nose followed through with a rich an textured pallet. The new oak is playing a beautiful supportive roll adding to the vanilla spice flavors but still persevering the fruit, notes of spice and melba toast to be found in this well balanced wine.

This wine will complement beef, lamb and rich venison dishes, however, on its own it expresses all the characters of Shiraz that lovers of this variety really enjoy.
