The '06 Chenin Blanc from Quails' Gate is a standout from this fine Westbank, BC winery. This wine could be an afternoon sipper, or an accompaniment with a meal. It's light and crisp, with a distinct citrus flavour (think very mild orange rind) and a subtly floral nose.
Tonight we enjoyed a rosemary roast chicken recipe cooked to perfection (I don't mind bragging about this), with a tangy broccoli/cauliflower casserole dusted with parmesan and ground cheddar. The wine stood up to the flavourful meal after it lost of some of its chill from the fridge, so let it breath for a few minutes in a glass before tasting.
