Quoin Rock Shiraz 2015

Quoin Rock Shiraz 2015

“Chunky, bold and big!” Very expressive of this variety in perfect balance, expressing characters of jasmine, pepper-spice, melba-toast and sweet vanilla, with beautiful oak and tannin integration.

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.
