Quail's Gate Pinot Noir 2009
Our handcrafted, fresh fruit forward Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from our estate vineyards on the slopes of Mt. Boucherie. The soils of volcanic rock and ash help develop the unique and rare style for which Quails’ Gate is known. The 2009 growing season was one of the hottest years on record in the Okanagan. This provided an early pick date helping preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The palate is underlaid by very fine, firm, yet supple tannins with a note of savory complexity that builds through to a persistent finish.
