Quails' Gate Stewart Family Reserve Chardonnay 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaQuails' Gate's flagship white wine, the Stewart Family Reserve, primarily clone 95, is now 23-year-old vines planted on the ancient volcanic soils of Mount Boucherie. The nose is a fragrantly enticing mix of pears, toasted nuts, honeyed lees and light, but effective spicing. The palate is even better with medium weight, bright, mineral, ripe red apple, lees through the balanced back end. Impressive as always and ages with little effort. Complex and inviting, this is a beacon of B.C. chardonnay.Tasted: 30 December 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 45.00 winery online/direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
