Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir

Silver Medal International Wine & Spirit Competition

The Stewart Family Reserve Pinot Noir is our flagship red wine at Quails’ Gate. The fruit is sourced from our finest blocks on the Boucherie slopes just across from the winery. This wine is made in limited quantities and only in vintages of exceptional quality.

Tasting & Pairing

Expect an inviting mix of ripe red fruits, such as cherry, raspberry and cranberry that lift the palate, along with undertones of earth, allspice and clove. The tannins are evident and will soften beautifully with time. Suave, with an effortless elegance, we recommend serving at 15°C to enhance your tasting experience. Try pairing with duck, Thanksgiving turkey, pork, seared BC salmon and rack of lamb served with a ragout of French lentils.

Winemaking

A blend of our premium Pinot Noir blocks and clones grown at our West Kelowna estate, some of the vines date back to the 1970’s giving exceptional fruit complexity. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks using a combination of indigenous and French cultivated yeast strains. After fermentation, the wine is aged in medium-plus toasted new and old French oak barrels for 11 months before blending and bottling, giving depth and character to deliver a powerful yet supple wine. Enjoy until 2027.
