quails gate

This Saturday we are tasting one of BC's oldest estate family wineries.

Quail's Gate winery first vintage was in 1989. The winery is located in Kelowna with incredible view of the lake. We are tasting a few of our many favorites starting with their hard to get Chenin Blanc and newly released rose.

Stop by and taste some of these newly released wines and if in the Kelowna area stop by the wine shop and their restaurant for some incredible eats! See you Saturday!

Between 3:30-6:30pm

Chenin Blanc 2016

A beautiful salmon pink in the glass, notes of red berries, melon and fresh herbs lead to a refreshing, dry finish. The perfect patio, poolside or picnic pairing. With its incredible versatility, this wine would pair well with a variety of dishes including fresh caprese salad, pizza or rosemary roasted chicken.

Chardonnay 2015

The 2015 is yet another beautifully crafted Chardonnay. The wine opens with notes of peach and nectarine notes with hints of melon and pineapple. The influence of oak adds subtle notes of toast and vanilla and enriches the mouthfeel of this delightful wine. We suggest serving this wine between 8 to 10 °C, slightly warmer than you would for most white wines. This is a very versatile food wine and we recommend roasted loin of pork, scallops, clam chowder, white fish dishes and soft creamy cheeses.

Pinot Noir 2016

The 2015 Merlot shows aromas of juicy black cherry, ripe plum and toasty oak. The palate is intense and full bodied with structured tannins. Flavours of ripe red fruit, tobacco and leather mingle with characteristic black cherry and cocoa notes. This full-bodied wine will pair nicely with hearty, bold dishes such as braised short ribs, lasagna or grilled game meat.
