Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a beautiful wine! Aromas of golden pear, yellow apple, sweet lemon, pineapple, buttered bread. and a hint of toffee. Full bodied and luscious on the palate, with lovely balancing acidity. Orchard and tropical fuit flavours are ripe and balanced, with a hint of caramel on a long finish. Enjoy with buttery lobster or an herb-roasted chicken.
James Pybus rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Full bodied without being overpowering. Paired well with curried chickpeas. Very enjoyable wine.
We love Quails' Gate Chardonnay from the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Fresh on the nose with layers of ripe pear, apple, dried pineapple, citrus curd, butterscotch, baking spice and mineral flavours mouth filling and silky on the palate. The winery was founded in 1956 and owned and operated by the Stewart family. - Community Wine Reviews
