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

The 2020 vintage opens with aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, cassis and cedar  On the palate, rich and elegant flavours of red fruit and baking spice.  An ideal match for mushroom or squash risotto, seared game meats or roasted pork with wild rice and root vegetables.

Method

As pioneers of Pinot Noir in the Okanagan Valley, the winemaking team continues to raise the bar with this annual release. Sourced from several premium vineyards and a variety of clones, the 2020 vintage saw warm summer temperatures contributing to exceptional ripe, opulent flavours and smooth tannins resulting in an exceptional Pinot Noir.  Cold soaked for five days then fermented separately on skins for 10-20 days before being pressed off and transferred to new and old French oak barrels for 9 months.  Drink now through 2031
