Tasting Notes

Expect an inviting mix of ripe red fruits, such as cherry, raspberry and plum that lift the palate, along with sweet spice aromas of allspice, clove and nutmeg. 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.

Technical Notes

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. It is made in limited quantities and only in vintages of exceptional quality. The warm season resulted in very ripe grapes. A blend of different blocks and clones of Pinot Noir grown on estate with some of the vines being 30 years old, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks using a combination of indigenous and French cultivated yeast strains. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels (40% new and 60% 1 & 2 years old) for 11 months before blending and bottling, giving depth and character to deliver a powerful yet supple wine.
