Quails' Gate Maréchal Foch Limited Release Fortified Vintage 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis fortified foch from a single vintage, what the Portuguese would refer to as a colheita, was made to honour Poppa Dick, grandfather to the current Stewart family clan and the man responsible for the business. The production follows traditional port methods using some of the oldest maréchal foch grapes on the property picked very late in the season. The fermentation is stopped using Okanagan Spirits alcohol made with foch fruit and aged 18 months in oak barrels. The style is pleasingly fresh with concentrated fig and cherry, with a dusting of milk chocolate and a hint of spirit. I’m with Geoff and the winery and the recommended sticky toffee pudding match.Tasted: 07 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 375 winery direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
