Quails' Gate Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Stewart Family Reserve has a long history of excellence. It is also a label that ages well, typically seven to ten years, with ease, especially in great years like 2020. It is richer and more complex than the regular version beginning with a deeper colour and riper fruit: more New World than Old World. The mid-palate is dense, with some sweet tannins to shed, but this is packed with possibilities that will unfurl slowly over the next five years. The use of oak is very judicious and will further accentuate its ability to mature fully in the bottle. Veal chops in a mushroom sauce would be the match now.Tasted: 28 October 2022Tasted by: Prices:
