Quails' Gate Old Vines Foch 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis note write itself most years thanks to forty years of practice by this writer and these grapevines first planted in 1978. Maréchal Foch is a hybrid grape that while undistinguished in the 1980s has come into its own with superior winemaking and viticulture in recent years. The nose is a mix of scorched earth with cedar, coffee grinds and plummy cran-cherry fruit. The texture is soft but with prevalent acidity and a peppery finish. This would be perfect with a beef or a mushroom burger.Tasted: 04 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.99 winery direct, private wine shops AB 24.99 private wine shops ON 27.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
