The Chenin Blanc grape has flourished on the Quails’ Gate Estate for more than 20 years. Quails’ Gate is one of the few vineyards in the Okanagan growing the versatile Chenin Blanc. This grape can be made in a variety of styles, from dry to sweet and even sparkling: the dry Chenin we produce has been served to a number of VIPs including US President Obama (2007 vintage) and William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (2010 vintage).
Grapes were hand-harvested, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented in stainless steel.
Enjoy now through 2032.
Expect inviting aromas of pear, lemongrass, and white peach.
This wine displays a beautiful, vibrant acidity with flavours of citrus and stone fruit, followed by a delicate, lingering finish.
Best enjoyed chilled (6-8ºC) and pairs perfectly alongside seafood dishes such as oysters with an onion mignonette, butter-basted spot prawns, or a linguine clam vongole.
