QUINQUINAS IS BACK !
In 2018, St Raphaël continues to innovate, adding to its range of Classics with two new products, the Quinas ! This new collection, inspired by original St Raphaël recipes, is designed to offer the very typical flavours and complex tastes found in the Quinquinas of days gone by. St Raphaël’s Quinas are the fruit of a subtle marriage of noble wines and carefully selected aromatic plants and spices with exotic names, like quinquina, cocoa, bitter orange, vanilla and even Colombo. They are available in two flavours, Red and Amber.
QUINA RED OR QUINA AMBER ?
The intense and distinguished Quina Red is a subtle combination of plants and spices, dominated by cocoa. On the palate, huge vinosity gives the attack a sensation of power perfectly balanced by sweetness and the well-structured tannins provided by the quinquina bark and Colombo. The aromatic complexity peaks in notes of orange peel, chocolate and vanilla.
Quina Amber immediately reveals fragrances of cocoa, vanilla and caramel. The same flavours are found on the palate in the very smooth attack. The tannins are subtle, underscored by the flavours of the orange peel. A long finish leaves a velvety feel on the palate.
Though their subtle flavours mean they can be enjoyed neat, chilled or with ice, this new range is also ideal for creating delicious cocktails.
