Vinification
Individual grape parcels from some of our best vineyards on the farm were crushed and fermented in open-top stainless-steel tanks withregular punch-downs (4-5 times daily), followed by extended skin maceration. All parcels are kept separately for the entire time of agingto allow the winemaker to choose carefully from the batches and ensure we adhere to the high standards and exceptional quality expected from the Quoin Rock Bordeaux Blend.


Maturation
55% in NEW 1st-fill French barrels, 45% in 2nd-and 3rd-fill 225L French barrels, for 20 months.

Winemaker`s notes
A wine with complex layers of dark fruit, vanilla oak, cacao and a hint of pencil shavings typical of Cab variety. A big, structured yet velvety and elegant pallet that lingers on and on. A beautiful expression of new world upfront fruit and old world elegance.
Food pairing
A bold, powerful wine that matches most red meat dishes and rich cheeses perfectly.
