Wines / Quails' Gate / The Allison

The Allison

John and Susan Allison were the first European settlers on
the west side of Okanagan Lake in 1873, and here they
built a small log home. In 1956, Richard Stewart Jr. saw the
Allison Ranch and chose these lands for their viticultural
potential. This wine is named for the Allison family and the
original ranch house that is still on our farm today, a home
that’s finding a new life welcoming guests to Quails’ Gate
Winery.

Tasting & Pairing

Juicy and rich with aromas of black cherry and blueberry, licorice, violet, a hint of leather and tobacco with pepper and sage. A bright, lush palate of ripe dark berries with well integrated dusty tannins and a long finish. Try this robust wine with fire-grilled meats, forno pizza or anything on the barbecue.

Winemaking

61% Syrah and 39% Cabernet Franc. Predominantly sourced from one vineyard in Osoyoos. 100% barrel aged in neutral oak for 20 months.
