Quails' Gate Old Vines Foch 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaQuails’ Gate is well known for its old vines foch planted in 1978 in Osoyoos. The hybrid grape named after French World War I hero, General Ferdinand Foch. The nose is curiously reminiscent of the scorched earth notes you get in South African reds. The fruit is fully ripe with strong coffee and ripe plum notes with bits of cran-cherry, leather and edgy acidity. Best served with rich hearty fall dishes accompanied by mushrooms and root vegetables. A splash decant for 30 minutes is always recommended with foch.Tasted: 29 September 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 24.99 private wine shops ON 27.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
