Lovely, round and full-bodied with a smokey, green apple finish. Yum. Chardonnay food pairings: wild BC salmon with cranberry almond crust, celeriac clafoutis, wilted kale and white wine fumet.

Fred Johnson reviewed this wine as follows:

Purchased at winery in Kelowna, BC
Our Chardonnay grapes were harvested in October 2010 from the Quails’ Gate Estate Boucherie Mountain vineyards. The rich clay and gravel soils offer mineral influences, giving the wine interest and complexity. The 2010 growing season provided an excellent balance of cool temperatures with good heat when needed. Our estate grown Chardonnay is 50% tank fermented and 50% barrel fermented in 20% new French and American oak. This combination gives the wine interest and complexity from the barrel ferment while the tank portion provides bright tropical citrus notes.
