A dry and zesty Riesling with lemongrass, lemon zest and mineral flavours finishing long on the palate with mouth-watering citrus and great acidity grilled shellfish and Dijon honey herbed chicken breast. Enjoy now and for the next three years.

Riesling food pairings: seafood ceviche, barbeque shrimp drizzled with lime, fresh crab or pork belly.

Reviews and Ratings

From West Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia Quails' Gate 2018 Riesling is a dry, fruity and flavoursome Riesling with zesty lemon, herbal and mild petrol aromas on the nose, clean and vibrant on the palate with a clean mineral finish. Pair with shellfish or seafood. The Stewart family at Quails' Gate have been making wine since 1989 from vines planted in 1961. Chill and enjoy with sautéed sea scallops and fresh salads topped with freshly steamed shrimp. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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