Natalie's Score: 93/100

Quails' Gate Stewart Family Reserve 2019 Pinot Noir is fragrant with ripe cherry, raspberry, mocha, cinnamon and nutmeg spices. The wine is dry, medium-bodied and elegant balanced with spot-on acidity with a long and silky finish. Tannins are velvety. Enjoy with pan-seared duck breast. This is the flagship red wine at Quails' Gate, with grapes sourced from premium blocks in the estate vineyard with some vines dating back to the 1970s.

Pinot Noir food pairings: duck confit, coq au vin, beef bourguignon.

Reviews and Ratings

Lori Sweet rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is Quails’ Gate flagship red wine, and for good reason. This full body wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in French and neutral oak. The grape and the process bring out vivid and complex aromas: jammy raspberry, lavender, spiciness, and vanilla. It also reminded me of an old library.

On the palate, strong tannin, medium acidity, notes of black pepper giving it broad shoulders. Suggested pairing with stronger tasting meat, such as lamb, or duck. It will also go well with creamy cheese such as brie and mushroom risotto.
