Foxtrot's "The Waltz" Exclusive To Top Table *
* (From the press release.)
TopTable Group is pleased to announce the release of Foxtrot Vineyards ‘The Waltz’ 2010 blended Pinot Noir, which will be available exclusively at Blue Water Cafe, Araxi, West, and CinCin beginning September 18th. It follows on the success of last year’s release of Toptable’s ‘Director’s Blend’.
The Waltz is a Pinot Noir blend from three Foxtrot blocks located on the Naramata Bench, and from vine stocks ranging in age from five to 23 years. Complex fermentation and varied aging in oak have led to a ‘vibrant wine with fresh aromas of dark chocolate, black cherry, raspberry and violet—with spicy notes on the finish,’ says Gustav Allander, Foxtrot’s head winemaker. ‘The Waltz has classic Pinot Noir earthiness, and strikes a perfect harmony between power and elegance with silky tannins and beautiful red fruit characteristics,’ he adds.
The Waltz was blended in collaboration with Toptable’s expert wine directors: Owen Knowlton of West, Andrea Vescovi of Blue Water Cafe, Dave Marchand of CinCin, and Samantha Rahn of Araxi. The wine was created with a view of providing ‘absolute friendship with food’, said Andrea Vescovi. “We are extremely excited about this exclusive collaboration with Foxtrot Vineyards and look forward to sharing The Waltz with our guests,’ says Owen Knowlton.
The limited supply of just 100 cases of The Waltz will be available in Toptable restaurants while supplies last.
