Quails' Gate Maréchal Foch Limited Release Fortified Vintage 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a sweet, fortified red wine that's arguably closest in style to a ruby Port. It's smooth and ready to drink after ageing 18 months in barrel, and the fruit shows just a touch of developing character veering into the baked spectrum. It's made from maréchal foch, but this is really more about the style than the grape variety, and it hits the mark nicely. There's the spiritous 18% abv, from locally distilled neutral grape spirit in this case, and roughly 80 g/L residual sugar. So, you'll probably only want a couple of ounces after dinner. But there's no rush to finish a bottle because it'll keep in your fridge for at least several weeks.Tasted: 11 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 375 winery direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
