Quails' Gate Chardonnay Stewart Family Reserve 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of three chardonnays released in 2017, this is the middle tier, and the one the winery considers their flagship chardonnay. The fruit comes from estate blocks on the volcanic slopes of Boucherie Mountain. Barrel fermentation, full MLF and regular battonage amp up the richness of this wine, plump and creamy on the expansive lemon curd palate. Baked pear, green apple, perfumed white blossoms, vanilla and toasty oak, fill out the rest, brightened with a lemon testiness a polished wine destined for lobster or buttery crab.Tasted: 22 March 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 39.99 winery direct, private wine shops AB 39.99 private wine stores ON 43.95 LCBO QC 36.00 SAQ Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
