HARVEST NOTES

This wine is a product from twenty-five-year-old vines from Hugh & Mary Vineyard and fruit from premium growers in the Thompson Valley. The fruit was picked at the end of October under clear blue skies. Can you think of a better way to spend a fall day in the Okanagan?! Not a chance. 

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

We are big lovers of Marchel Foch (even though it is not the easiest to make). These grapes were crushed and destemmed and then left to cold soak over several days. The must was fermented in small individual 3/4 ton lots until halfway to dryness, before being pressed in our half-ton basket press, and left to finish fermentation in American oak. This Extra Mile release of our 2018 Foch was the best three barrels of the bunch. The wine was barrel aged for 16 months before bottling. 

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and coconut coupled with a round, rich palate make this the kind of full bodied wine that will keep you coming back for more (and more, and more). Flavours of blackberry, plum, and hazelnut pair well with a great cut of meat and a whole lot of Leonard Cohen. This is the wine you’ve been training for. 

ABOUT THE EXTRA MILE COLLECTION 

It’s never crowded on the Back 40 and the same goes for the extra mile. That’s because it’s not easy to go above and beyond. The thing is, if you’re not willing to settle for less than greatness, there really is no other option. This wine is the best of our best and was made to pair with special occasions, big celebrations, or a job well done!
