A fresh and flavourful BC Chenin Blanc from a respected producer. Aromas of orchard fruit and smoke. Pair with seafood dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2013 growing year at our Estate vineyards was remarkably warm throughout which has translated into fruit forward wines with
surprising length and structure. This year’s blend of 91% Chenin Blanc and 9% Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from both Quails’ Gate Estate and Osoyoos vineyards. The grapes were whole bunch pressed followed by cold fermentation, 85% in stainless steel tanks and 15% in 2 year old French oak barrels. The barrel portion of the blend provides a lush quality to the palate alongside complex aromas. To truly appreciate the development and complexity of the character of this wine cellaring of 5-7 years can be undertaken.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
