Quoin Rock wines are born in the lush green vineyards of Stellenbosch and Quoin Point, near the southernmost tip of Africa. The Agulhas area where the protected Boskloof farm is located and where bontebok, springbok, eland and zebra roam and this is the starting point from which some of our most distinctive wines of South Africa originate.

The White Blend from Quoin Rock is an absolute top wine made in the style of a top bordeaux and is a blend of sauvignon blanc (85%) and semillon (15%). The first hint of this beautiful Quoin Rock White Blend comes in the flint, stone fruit and fig top notes of Sauvignon Blanc, followed by the smooth mandarin character of Semillon. The gooseberry and melon character of the wine creates a creamy, round palate, making this an exceptionally elegant wine with a lingering body that can be enjoyed as a fine dinner or lunch wine or as a very nice aperitif. Gastronomically very versatile and of course perfect with fish dishes and fresh pastas.

This is without doubt one of South Africa's top white wines and always receives high accolades: Decanter 91 points, IWSC 92 points and Platter's 4*
