Winemaker’s Notes:
Rich, full-bodied, deep, dark, dry red.

This rich dark full-bodied wine was made from the oldest vines on the property, planted in 1984. Fermented on its skins for seven days, barrel aged for 18 months, this wine is drinking now but will improve with age. Cellar potential, up to three to five years.

    D’Angelo Fortified Foch Review

    0 Reviews
    4.33 overall score

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    This dessert wine was made by adding Canadian Spirits on day three of the fermentation, thus raising the alcohol to 15.4% and leaving the natural sugar unfermented and then barrel aged.

    A port style wine (10). Pair it with chocolate for a special treat.

    Vintage: (undated)

    D’Angelo Iced Foch Vidal 2008 Review

    Sat 22, Jan. 11

    4.00 overall score

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    Our famous Iced Foch blended with Late Harvest Vidal for a refreshing dessert.

    Some grapes are left on the vine past normal harvest, past first frost 0C and as cold as -10C, which will freeze the fruit. The grapes are picked and pressed to yield a natural level from 24 brix to as high as 40 brix. Through blending our winemaker Sal D’Angelo has achieved a Canadian dessert wine with 100% natural sweetness. Enjoy after a meal, with dessert, or by itself.

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    Aged in French oak, a very pleasant dry red. Great with barbequed foods.

    (The follow notes are from the label, however it appears to be the 2005 Cab Franc Label with dates on lable changed to 2007)
    An intense dry red and aged in oak barrels for eighteen months. This wine has good tannin structure and will develop in the cellar for three to five years.
