Quoin Rock Red Blend 2015

Quoin Rock Red Blend 2015

A wine with a layered fruit profile - Red fruit, especially Cranberry, comes through strongly on the nose. This is followed by a complex, dense, juicy celebration on the palate where layers of fruit, wood, red-berry and tomato cocktail harmonize together, creating the perfect marriage between Old and New world.

A bold, powerful wine that matches most red meat dishes and rich cheeses perfectly.
