Quails' Gate Old Vines Foch Reserve 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe old vines planted by Poppa Dick are at the centre of this reserve version of foch, now an Okanagan cult classic. It is stainless steel fermented on skins for 19 days before spending 20 months in American oak barrels, which defines its demeanour. The palate is a riot of intensity sporting vanilla, charred oak, sagebrush, coffee, molasses and wild black fruit. In short, a lot of everything. If you are a lamb fan, this would be the wine you could serve with it, and they would both be happy.Tasted: 07 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 46.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
