Quoin Rock Namysto Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Stellenbosch - Regular “punch-downs” of perfectly-grown grapes in open-top stainless-steel tanks, with extended skin maceration, before the wine is transferred to French oak barrels and 20 months maturation, result in a wine with aromas of red berries and hints of peppercorn “spiciness” which then leads through to a palate layered with profiles of tobacco and leather, plummy richness on the mid-palate and finishing off with soft, velvety tannins.

Quoin Rock Namysto Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Western Cape - Reductively made to preserve the aromatic fruit profile, a combination of wine fermented in both stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, having undergone regular “lees stirring” and then matured in barrel for another 6 months, this wine expresses tropical fruit aromas of litchi and fig leaf, leading through to a palate with refreshing melon and lemon characters
