FOUNDRY is our Grand Reserve, an ultra-premium red blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Fruit was sourced from vineyards in both the South Okanagan and the Similkameen Valley. Fermentation occured in 30hL French Oak Tanks, lending beautiful structure and tannin to the wine following an extended Maceration. Following pressing and settling, the wine aged in French Oak Barriques for 8 months before racking and bottling. Five barrels were selected for our first bottling of FOUNDRY, 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Malbec to produce 120 cases.
This is a full bodied wine, layered with velvet tannin and a long finish. It has complex aromas of layered wood, espresso, black forest cake and dried plums.
Enjoy with duck breast, rib eye steak, comte cheese or chocolate cake.
