This bottle of wine is a product of the 20-year-old vines from Hugh & Mary Vineyard. The vines were picked by hand at the end of October. The sun made an appearance as did the birds… they can’t get enough Foch which means we couldn’t pick is fast enough!
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 the fruit was cold soaked over several days. The juice was then fermented in small, individual lots in brand new American oak barrels for 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 cold nights, crackling fires and old movies. Decant an hour before tasting (if you can bear to wait!).
