Quails’ Gate Estate Winery 2016 Stewart Family Reserve Chardonnay
Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
The latest edition of the Stewart Family Reserve Chardonnay made in an attention-getting fleshy and mouth-filling style. This is a rich, toffee-laced white wine with a generous character from 100 percent barrel fermented in French oak (mix of old and new), regular battonage and full malolatic conversion. The finished wine boasts nicely integrated oak, with creamy texture and ripe core of peach and tropical fruit. A long spicy and citrussy finish adds to the lingering appeal. Drink now to 2025. Highly Recommended. 1,173 cases.
