Old Vines Foch

In the past decade, our Old Vines Foch Reserve has developed a strong following. These grapes are from vines originally planted by Richard Stewart Jr. more than 50 years ago, creating a complex wine with profound intensity.

 

Tasting & Pairing

Aromas of vanilla and cherry mix with signature old vines savoury characteristics of black olives, sage, hay, dark fruit, coffee and molasses. A juicy cherry and cranberry palate with medium body, intense flavours and a persistent finish. Try pairing with bold, hearty dishes including roasted game meats such as bison short ribs or wine braised lamb shanks.

Winemaking

These grapes were hand harvested at our estate vineyard. 30 days on skins maximizes colour, with fermentation in 100% new American oak barrels for added complexity. Aged 20 months in barrel before blending and bottling.
