This bottle of wine is a combination of 18-year-old vines from Hugh & Mary Vineyard and 6-year-old vines from our friends Buck and Maria’s vineyard in the Similkameen. The grapes from the Similkameen were harvested at the very beginning of October and the Hugh & Mary grapes came almost three weeks later.Both harvest dates were filled with sunshine and the grapes were picked by hand.
We are big lovers of Marechal Foch (even though it is not the easiest to make). These grapes were pressed in our half-ton basket press and cold soaked over several days. The juice was then fermented in small, individual lots and aged in brand new American oak (for almost 24 months).
Aromas of dark chocolate and ripe berries coupled with a round, rich palate make this the kind of full-bodied wine that will keep you coming back for more. Flavours of dark fruits and spice pair well with steak, hamburgers, bratwurst, BBQ Ribs… the world is your oyster!
