Wine Style

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 colored, 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 Maréchel 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.
