Quail’s Gate has been owned and operated by the Stewart family since 1956.  Located in the Okanagan Valley it boasts 160 acres of incredible soil  below the extinct volcano of Mount Boucherie.  Its deposits work like a time release capsule. Combined with warm summers and mild winters, the volcanic rocks have decomposed and recombined into soluble molecules that are easily separated into their elements and accessible to plants – including vineyards. The result is some of the richest agricultural land on the planet.
Bishop’s Cellar sold Quail’s Gate wines when they first opened their doors in 2003 and is pleased to have these iconic and delicious wines back on the shelf after a hiatus.

Tasting Notes

A pronounced bouquet of green fruits, stone fruits, and tropical fruits occupy the nose, which carry on to the palate with added notes of citrus and salinity. Dry, medium-bodied, and full of texture on the mid-palate. Pair this with shellfish (oysters, steamed clams, butter-basted shrimp) or sushi and/or sashimi. 

Method

Past vintages often included some Sauvignon in the blend, though this 2021 vintage of the Quail’s Gate Chenin Blanc is  93% Chenin Blanc and 7% Viognier.  The Chenin Blanc grapes were cold settled and fermented in 90% stainless steel and 10% neutral French oak while the Viognier grapes were 100% barrel fermented in neutral French oak.
