Fortified Vintage Foch

The label reflects the Stewart Family’s legacy and is a tribute to their Grandfather, “Poppa Dick”. This port-style wine is made to allow you to enjoy a wine that provides reflection on the days events. Rich concentrated flavours dominate the palate while the aromas captivate and provide the elegant port like characters we all love.

Tasting & Pairing

Dark and intensely coloured, the 2014 vintage opens with a complex array of dark mulled fruits, baking spices and chocolate covered raisins. The palate has a rich, sweet mouth-feel with ripe black cherry and kirsch on a long succulent finish. We recommend pairing with chocolate truffles, figs and ginger nut cake. Blue cheese would also be a delightful match.

Winemaking

This Fortified Vintage Foch was made in the traditional port-style using very ripe Maréchal Foch grapes harvested in September 2013. The grapes are picked at an exceptionally ripe stage and are fermented in stainless steel tanks and fortified with a spirit made for us by Okanagan Spirits using the pomace left from our Foch winemaking. This port-styled wine was aged for 18 months in oak barrels before bottling.
