Reviews and Ratings

Our Riesling is handpicked and sourced entirely from vines in our Quails’ Gate Estate vineyards. The deep roots that extend into the subsoils of the Boucherie Mountain slopes bring more complex mineral and slate notes to the fruit. This wine is cold fermented in stainless tanks with French and German cultivated yeast strains to add complexity and character. Classic aged Riesling characteristics will develop in the bottle over a 2–3 year period and will reward careful cellaring of 5 – 10 years.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
