Quails' Gate Chenin Blanc Clone 220 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA bone dry, single clone (220) chenin blanc that comes in at only 13.5 percent alcohol is definitely on my radar. It has a different style than most Okanagan whites, with far less orchard fruit and more floral, honeysuckle, starfruit, nectarine skin, with bright underlying acidity and a pleasant bitter note in the finish. The textures are rounded and silky, thanks to fermentation of 90 percent in a 1700L concrete egg, while 10 percent was fermented in stainless steel. The result is a well made, delicious, complex, food-friendly white we enjoyed with a mild curry dish.Tasted: 22 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 winery online/direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
