Quail's Gate Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is their flagship red wine. The volcanic slopes at this Quails’ Gate vineyard site are ideally suited to this varietal. Made to be elegant with grace and finesse, this wine is made for wine lovers who desire a sophisticated style of Pinot Noir. As one of Canada’s leading producers of Pinot Noir, we ensure that our wines exhibit rich, complex fruit flavours, reminiscent of classic Burgundy wines, while showcasing the added elegance of BC winemaking techniques.
The 2016 Pinot Noir is an expressive combination of bright juicy red berry fruit, violets, cloves and savoury dried herbs. Medium in body, the wine has a beautiful balance of fruit and acidity with polished tannins and a long, lingering finish.
We suggest pairing with roasted squash risotto, seared venison or braised pork with wild rice and roasted root vegetables. We recommend serving at around 15°C to enhance your tasting experience.
