This latest vintage of our beloved blend is quite possibly our finest to date. The exceptional summer of 2016, 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.
Carefully hand harvested, the 2014 vintage possesses supple notes of ripe red berries, vanilla beans, cocoa and black cherries.
This medium bodied, elegantly crafted red paints not only the glass but the palate with lifted tannins supported by balanced acidity.
The 2014 Marquette makes a wonderful pairing for grilled meats, stews and hearty vegetarian dishes.
