Quails’ Gate Estate Winery 2016 Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir
Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
Quails’ Gate’s flagship Pinot Noir comes from older vines (more than 20 years old) on the Mount Boucherie Bench. The 2016 bottling is a ripe and supple Pinot with a silky-smooth texture and impressive structure that makes it truly stand out. The fruit was hand-harvested and underwent spontaneous fermentation before being pressed and aged 10 months in French oak. Look for attractive warm spice notes that add interest to the juicy core of berry/cherry fruit and carry through to a long, lingering finish. Drink now to 2028. Highly Recommended. 1,100 cases.
