Fortified Vintage Foch

The label reflects our Stewart Family legacy and is a tribute to our Grandfather “Poppa Dick”. This port-style wine has rich concentrated flavours on the palate while the aromas captivate and provide the elegant port-like characters we all love.

Tasting & Pairing

Dark and intensely coloured, the wine opens with aromas of cherry, raisin, fig, chocolate and candied orange rind. The palate is sweet, rich and smooth with notes of cherry, fig and mulling spices leading to a long, decadent finish. We recommend pairing with dark chocolate truffles, sticky toffee pudding or a cheese platter with blue cheese and candied nuts.

 

Winemaking

The Fortified Vintage Foch was made in the traditional port style using very ripe Maréchal Foch grapes harvested from our mature estate vineyards. The grapes are picked at an exceptionally ripe stage and are fermented in stainless steel tanks and fortified with a spirit made locally at Okanagan Spirits using our Maréchal Foch grapes. This port-style wine was aged for 18 months in oak barrels before bottling.
