Wines / Quails' Gate / Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is our flagship red wine. The volcanic slopes at this Quails’ Gate vineyard site are ideally suited to this varietal. Made to be elegant with grace and finesse, this wine is made for wine lovers who desire a sophisticated style of Pinot Noir. As one of Canada’s leading producers of Pinot Noir, we ensure that our wines exhibit rich, complex fruit flavours, reminiscent of classic Burgundy wines, while showcasing the added elegance of New World winemaking techniques.

Tasting & Pairing

The 2015 Pinot Noir is medium bodied and shows great complexity and length with attractive, juicy red berried fruit and subtle oak influence.Classic Pinot Noir, with notes of cherry, raspberry and plum fruit with allspice, earth, dried herbs and savory notes. The balance of fruit, acidity and light tannins make this a very versatile food wine.

We suggested roasted chicken, grilled BC salmon and duck dishes. For vegetarians, beet, mushroom and French lentil dishes make great pairings. We recommend serving at around 15°C to enhance your tasting experience.

Winemaking

The fruit is sourced from various vineyard parcels on our estate. After crush there is a five-day cold soak prior
to ferment. This extracts all the colour and flavor from the grapes without imparting too much tannin. After
approximately three weeks fermentation is completed and the fruit is pressed and aged in quality French oak barrels
(approximately 25% of which is new) for 10 months before being blended and bottled. Enjoy now, or cellar for 3 to 5 years.
