This latest vintage of our beloved blend is quite possibly our finest to date. The exceptional summer of 2017, with high heat and long dry days, provided ideal conditions for this unique blend.
Our estate Maréchal Foch and Baco Noir ripened beautifully with intense and polished flavours of dark berry, spice and tobacco. The Cabernet and Merlot sourced from Niagara add a softening touch of fruit which carries through the finish.
Try this vintage paired with bison or venison grilled alongside wild mushrooms and roots.
The introduction of Marquette heralds a new era of leading edge, cool climate grape varietals. Developed at the University of Minnesota’s viticultural program, this revolutionary hybrid is the child of both classical vinifera (Pinot Noir) and native North American grapevine species.
The 2017 vintage possesses supple notes of ripe red berries, smooth vanilla beans, cocoa and black cherries.
This medium bodied, dry red paints not only the glass but the palate with bold tannins supported by balanced acidity.
The 2017 Marquette makes a wonderful pairing for roast duck, strip steak, or earthy brie.
