Quails’ 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.

Tasting Notes

In the glass you’ll note an expansive bouquet of blueberry, cocoa and violet.  The palate is rich with layers of fruit, cocoa, black pepper and supple tannins.  The wine is powerful and elegant.  This bold blend pairs well with barbecued meats; brisket, spiced sausages or charred bell peppers topped with blue cheese.  

Method

Our Upper Boucherie bench vineyard is a southern exposure site featuring volcanic soils rich in mineral deposits. It is one of the few sites in the Kelowna area that ripens blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Queue not only captures the essence of these blocks, but it is also derived from the Latin word cõda which in music, is an arrangement that punctuates the end of a symphony. Queue – the winemaker’s composition.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah were hand-picked from the finest parcels on our estate. The grapes were then gently destemmed and transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Each block was fermented separately and spent between 8-14 days on the skins to develop deep, rich colour. Aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak and 70% neutral French oak before being meticulously blended.
