Old Vines Foch

Named after the French World War I hero, General Ferdinand Foch, Maréchal Foch grapes produce an intensely flavoured and full bodied red wine. This fruit was harvested in October 2014 from vines planted back in 1978 from our southern vineyards located in Osoyoos.

Tasting & Pairing

This vintage has flavours of ripe black fruits, dark plum, baking spices, and its characteristic smoke, earth and meaty notes. On the palate the wine is full bodied and smooth with juicy black berries, spice and game notes. Try pairing with pepper steak, sausages and blue cheese stuffed burgers and caramelized onions.

Winemaking

Harvested in October, this wine is a classic Maréchal Foch made from vines planted in 1978, 36 year old vines grown at our Southern estate vineyard in Osoyoos. This site provides maximum heat during the growing season and produces a very ripe concentrated fruit. Aged for 18 months in American oak barrels, this wine will improve up until 2020.
