Winemaker Notes

On the nose, expect fragrant aromas of jasmine along with notes of pear and vanilla shortbread. The palate is bursting with bright stone fruit flavours along with a hint of caramel. This wine has very good intensity, a nice texture, and beautiful mouthwatering acidity.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Quails' Gate Chardonnay is fresh and bright with a refreshingly crisp aftertaste. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers lovely aromas and flavors of ripe, peach skin, stone fruit, and mineral. Pair it with grilled chicken thighs. (Tasted: July 7, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Quails' Gate Estate Winery  Winery Image
At Quails’ Gate Winery, we believe great wine starts in great vineyards. Our passion for grapegrowing and our dedication to excellence has combined to make us one of the top wineries in Canada.

We planted our first vines in 1961, but our love affair with the soil goes back to 1908, when Richard Stewart Sr. (affectionately known as “Poppa Dick”) settled in the area. From working the land, he would go on to establish one of the valley’s most successful nurseries. Six decades later, his son, Dick, switched over to growing grapes. With the help of Dick’s eldest son Ben and his wife Ruth, Quails’ Gate Winery was founded in 1989. Over the next two decades, the entire family became involved in making the company one of the leading producers of premium BC VQA wines.

Our vineyard team is dedicated to ensuring that our grapes are given the best chance to succeed and all our grapes are hand-harvested in order to maintain grape integrity. Our dedication to sustainability means we consistently apply best practices and ensure prudent use of resources. Today, we farm more than 200 acres of vineyards and are widely-regarded as industry experts in the development of Canadian viticulture practices.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
