The Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir is our flagship red wine at Quails’ Gate. The fruit is sourced from our finest blocks on the Boucherie slopes just across from the winery. This wine is made in limited quantities and shows great elegance and finesse and an ability to age particularly well.

 

A blend of our premium Pinot Noir blocks and clones grown at our West Kelowna estate, some of the vines date back to the 1970’s giving exceptional fruit complexity. The fruit is destemmed into stainless steel tanks with twice a day punchdowns during peak ferment. After 18 days on skins it is then aged for 17 months in a combination of

French and neutral oak.

 

  • On the nose, bright aromas of wild cherry, raspberry and laven- der leading to rich notes of all-spice, cedar, clove and vanilla.
  • A soft, round entry on the palate with a medium body and acidity. Firm tannins and a toasty black pepper structured finish.
  • We suggest pairing alongside roast chicken or turkey, rack of lamb served pink. Roast pork with herbs and fennel. Dishes with morels and other wild mushrooms. Mushroom risotto. Brie and similar styled creamy cheeses.
