Description

Quails Gate Chardonnay

Quails Gate Chardonnay on the nose, expect fragrant aromas of jasmine along with notes of pear and vanilla shortbread. The palate is bursting with bright stone fruit flavours along with a hint of caramel. This wine has very good intensity, a nice texture and beautiful mouthwatering acidity.

Their Chardonnay is a blend of reputable French clones including clones 95, 96, 277 and 809 grown on differing terroir on their estate. They make this wine using a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral oak barrels.

Owners of Quails Gate’ the Stewart family are a third generation, Okanagan farming family who have been part of the community for more than a century.

They farm over 200 acres of vineyards and have been leaders in the development of Canadian viticulture practices. They have some of the most mature vinifera plantings in the country and they’re committed to continuous improvements to their vineyards and winery facility.

They planted their first vines in 1961, but their love affair with the soil goes back to 1908, when Richard Stewart Sr. (affectionately known as “Poppa Dick”) settled in the area. From working the land, he would go on to establish one of the valley’s most successful nurseries. Six decades later, his son, Dick, switched over to growing grapes. With the help of Dick’s eldest son Ben and his wife Ruth, Quails’ Gate Winery was founded in 1989.

At Quails’ Gate Winery, they’re committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Their philosophy has always been to do more with less and they achieve that through the application of low-impact viticulture practices.

Their holistic management approach to grapegrowing preserves the diversity of their natural surroundings without compromising the quality of fruit. Through the use of remote vineyard monitoring stations, they can target chemical applications; utilize drip irrigation to conserve water and operate fewer vehicles in the vineyard. They also use organic fertilizers and nutrients, which are supplemented by their composting program.

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2019

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak. The wine was held in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling. Clear, pale straw in colour with fresh, delicate perfumes of stoned fruit, honeysuckle and almond blossom. On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Mezzacorona Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio 2020

Great value Pinot Grigio with typical ground almond flavour and a touch of spritz. The wine is more vinous than most with a suggestion of orchard fruits (apples, green plums) and the sort of weight that can handle most fish dishes.

Chereau Carre Muscadet 2018

One of the leading Muscadet producers with substantial family owned vineyards in some of the best locations of the region. The different terroirs owned allows Bernard to offer wines unique in style and differing qualities, - so forget the cheap pretenders to the Muscadet crown, try a wine that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shakes you around the room - if you dare! Big wine with big minerally flavours of the sea, air and vegetation finishing with a crisp punchy smoky edge - yeehaa!

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine Patrick Vauvy Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Medium gold in colour with a complex array of aromas including fresh notes of lime, pear, ripe apple, quince, herbs, chamomile and a hint of spiciness.

This is a young and dynamic wine, which can be enjoyed immediately or aged for several years.
