Quails' Gate Estate Winery Chasselas Pinot Blanc Pinot Gris 2011
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Harvested from Quails’ Gate Estate vineyards, the deep roots of the|
Chasselas vines extend into the subsoils of the Boucherie Mountain
slopes, bringing crisp complex notes to the fruit. This unique cool
climate region provides daytime heat and ripening potential, while
cool night temperatures help in the retention of bright acidity. All three
varietals are hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and fermented cold in stainless steel tanks with cultured yeasts to preserve the crisp, fresh
fruit flavours. This wine is best consumed young.
