Quails' Gate Chenin Blanc 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the cellar. Five years along, and this chenin is a shining example of 1 - why people should age smart chenin, and 2 - why we should plant more chenin in BC. Now cusping into mature notes, with honeycomb, honeysuckle, quince and green fig dominating the primary orchard fruits of young chenin. Earthy herbs, hay filtered throughout to a snappy stony finish. Acidity still bright, though lagging, more a consequence of the warm 2012 vintage than chenin's ageability. If you have this in the cellar, drink now.Tasted: 07 March 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 15.00 SK 19.00 MB 19.00 ON 18.00 consignment - Appellation Wine Marketing QC 19.00 consignment - Appellation Wine Marketing NS 23.00 PEI 23.00 NB 23.00 NF 23.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
