Quails Gate Chenin Blanc 750ml
"Our Chenin Blanc has been served to numerous visiting Heads of State including President Obama, the future King and Queen of England, William and Kate and the Japanese Royal Family. From its Loire Valley origins in France, to the Okanagan Valley, this vinifera grape has flourished on our estate for over 20 years. Light to medium bodied, juicy acidity with a racy, but dry finish, it is recognized as one of BC’s best when served with a platter of fresh shellfish.
Pale lemon in the glass, honeysuckle, grass, citrus, pear and melon mingle together on the nose. The palate is dry with surprisingly complex with beautifully balanced acidity, lovely weight and mid-palate texture, along with its characteristic stony mineral note. This wine is made for fresh, sustainable, BC seafood, including freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, wild BC spot prawns, mussels and ceviche. We also recommend pairing with local goat cheese salads." --Winemaker
