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

Aromas of cherry, cocoa, raspberry, wild strawberry, lavender, dried cranberry with savoury notes of sage leaf and earthy, blackberry, leather tones.  A medium bodied silk feel on the palate with balanced flavours of juicy red fruit. Best enjoyed in Burgundy stemware to enhance aromatics.  A great match for mushroom based dishes, roasted root vegetables, squash risotto, pork and game.  

Method

As pioneers of Pinot Noir in the Okanagan Valley, the winemaking team continues to raise the bar with this annual release. Sourced from a number of premium vineyards and a variety of clones, the vintage saw a cool spring followed by a moderately warm summer with consistent conditions and early flavour developments resulting in an exceptional Pinot Noir with great acidity.  Cold soaked for five days  then fermented separately on skins for 10-20 days before being pressed off and transferred to 100% French Burgundian oak barrels for 9 months.
