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.

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour.

The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.
