The Quoin Rock Shiraz is an expressive, yet harmoniously balanced representative of its grape variety; this is particularly evident in its complex play of aromas, which combines nuances of jasmine, pepper and sweet vanilla. The beautifully integrated tannins and oak notes lend the red wine with its strong character its elegance and soft mouthfeel on the palate. The Quoin Rock Shiraz matured for twenty months in French oak and is a culinary highlight on its own, but it also goes excellently with dishes of beef, lamb or game.

Quoin Rock – Expressive wines from the southernmost point of Africa

Framed by the slopes of the Simonsberg and the vineyards lies the Quoin Rock wine estate. It is only half an hour's drive from Cape Town airport along a winding road that meanders through the Knorhoek Valley, and in the summer months numerous roses line the driveway to the estate. This floral splendour is Vitaly Gaiduk's second passion, alongside excellent wines. He bought Quoin Rock in 2012, restored the 200-hectare estate and ushered in a new era. While his son Denis worked for four years to replant the vineyards and modernise the cellar, daughter-in-law Julia Gaiduk ensured that the elegance of the wine creations was also reflected in the architecture, for example in the light-flooded wine lounge, which also serves as the dining area for the Gåte restaurant, or the glazed event hall with its panoramic view of the vineyards that stretch out in Stellenbosch, near the southernmost tip of Africa, Quoin Point.

Quoin Rock: elegant, multi-faceted and emblematic wines

The complex and harmonious wines that Schalk Opperman creates expressively reflect their terroir. The centrepiece is the Quoin Rock collection, which includes a Shiraz and a Chardonnay in addition to the award-winning Red Blend. The wines in this line are aromatic, complex and elegant. This is already evident from the noble black and gold label, as the finely curved rings depicted on it are reminiscent of the age rings of a grapevine, which forms the basis of the perfectly balanced wines. The wines of the Namysto line are also symbolic, as it is a homage to an old pearl necklace of the same name from Ukrania – the homeland of the Gaiduk family. While today it is only worn as jewellery, this necklace used to have a symbolic meaning, as the colours, materials and number of rows used provided information about a woman's social status. In some African cultures, necklaces also have a deeper meaning – the Namysto wines therefore build a bridge between the owners' origins and their adopted home of South Africa, allow the different cultures to meet and are a symbol of diversity, which is also reflected in the multi-faceted wines.

Quoin Rock – Enjoying wine with all senses

During a tasting, Quoin Rock's guests can see for themselves the complexity of the wines and enjoy the creations of the two collections with all their senses – after all, visitors can also take a look into the wine cellar while doing so, and cheese and charcuterie platters ensure an even greater taste experience. Culinary delights are also guaranteed in the upscale restaurant Gåte. The name, which comes from Norwegian, means something like "entrance of a labyrinth" or "riddle" and stands for an extraordinary dining experience. This is also what the luxurious and stylish picnic under the roof of a pergola offers, because what could be better than a nice glass of wine, cosy seating, accompanied by freshly baked baguette, various dips and other delicacies? Those who would like to stay a little longer at Quoin Rock can check into the luxurious Manor House and gaze out over the impressive backdrop of Table Mountain and Simonsberg.
