Quails' Gate Stewart Chardonnay Family Reserve

Quails' Gate Stewart Chardonnay Family Reserve 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaQuails' Gate's flagship white wine, the Stewart Family Reserve, is primarily clone 95, planted in 1996 alongside other clones on their estate Mt Boucherie vineyards. After an overnight settling in stainless, this moved to French barrel for a long, 4 month ferment, and then a rest there on lees for an additional 6 months. It was then racked, blended, and bottled. Polished, creamy, and rich, this flows with lemon curd, downy lees, fine wood spicing along a plumped palate and structural frame. Very elegant and sophisticated choice, especially now, with 6 years of aging for us.Tasted: 23 April 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.99 no longer available at retail Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
