Little Straw Vineyards Marechal Foch 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

Yes, a French Hybrid, but it is winemaking skill and vineyard practices that count as they do here; the Slamka family has produced a muscular monster in purple robes redolent of cherry cola and raspberry; there are flavors of fresh ground coffee and raspberry in abundance. A typically short finish, but otherwise good depth and balance - quite close to some Beaujolais Cru. One of the best Marechal Foch I have tasted in years. 87 points.

In 1996, the three Slamka brothers took on theBringing in the grapes challenge of establishing their own winery. Wines vinted from the hot summer grapes of 1994 made up our first commercial releases. A blend of traditional growing techniques, modern wine making practices, and mature vines all combine to create the unique, rewarding taste of our wines. Our estate-grown Pinot Noir and Icewine have achieved growing recognition, and we have lately been producing some exceptional Sauvignon Blanc. To further increase our presence in the BC wine industry, we embarked on an ambitious expansion of our facilities in 2005. By the fall of 2006, our new wine shop welcomed "friends of the grape" from around the globe, and we debuted our new winery lounge during the 2008 Okanagan Spring Wine Festival. We also have Conference Room Facilities that are now available for rental. Click here to view a pdf file on our rates and amenities. Read less
