Quails' Gate Chenin Blanc Clone 220 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaClone 220 hails from Alsace but has been in the ground on the estate vineyard for more than 20 years. The Distinction release is a small-batch, fermented egg effort, a portion of which is aged in the same vessel. The method is all about gentle handling and delicacy. All the wine, including the other portion, is aged in neutral oak barrels for six months. The nose is bright and lively, led by lime and quince notes. The palate is similar, with a new updraft throughout. A delicious, complex, food-friendly white perfect for mild curry dishes. Impressive, and as is the aim, it is distinctive.Tasted: 26 August 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 winery online/direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
