Natalie's Score: 90/100
Round and rich with attractive golden appear and yellow pear aromas and flavours. Almost full-bodied with a mouth-filling roundness. Pair with scallops with a sesame ginger dressing, spinach and pepper jack stuffed chicken, pasta with tomato sauce, pork tenderloin.
Chardonnay food pairings: turkey burgers, crab cakes, chicken breast, lobster in butter sauce, cheese.

Reviews and Ratings
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine is an example of how well BC wines can be made for a pretty affordable price. This is a well-balanced, medium acidity, medium-bodied wine that would be a good food wine. I would think the lemon and slight oaky aromas would be perfect with lobster on a beach on Vancouver Island.
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful aromas of stone fruit with a hint of vanilla and lime carry through on the palate. Mouthwatering flavors and refreshing acidity would cut through creamy pasta dishes or paired perfectly with salmon with dill sauce.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Wow! A beautiful full-bodied Chardonnay from BC shows brilliant medium lemon colour in the glass. Intense aromas of oxidized apple, pear, toast, toffee, peach and campfire. The palate is creamy textured with tree fruit, floral, oak, vanilla, sweet spices. The length is long on an apple finish. Acidity medium + and balancing. Another reason to make BC wines more readily available in Ontario. #FreeMyGrapes

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Full bodied and flavourful. Aromas are bursting out of the glass and include apple and pears, along with some vanilla, caramel and smoky notes from the oak aging. Apple is most prominent on the palate, with some smoke and spice. Full bodied and robust with a long finish. This would be perfect with lobster or other rich seafood, or a nice lemon and rosemary roasted chicken.
|Brad rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A nice chardonnay that is a very light harvest gold color. The nose has aromas of green apple, citrus fruits, green grass and some pear. There is a light acidic tinge on the palette and you can really taste the apple.
|The Stewart family settled in the Okanagan Valley as pioneering horticulturists in 1908 and in 1956 purchased the land on which the vines for Quails' Gate wines now grow. - Community Wine Reviews|
