Hills Reserve Viognier

Hills Reserve Viognier bottle

The hillside terroir covers a scrubby garrigue landscape and is drier as it is subjected to the Mistral and Tramontane winds. These cool, dry, strong winds regularly sweep across the garrigue, contributing to the concentration of the grapes grown on this terroir. The complexity of the soils (3 geological areas) allows many varietals to express all of their aromas and flavors of ripe, even jammy fruit, garrigue spices, and flowers.

Aromatics of apricot, peach, and passion fruit meld with notes of orange blossoms on the nose. Flavors of stone and tropical fruits unfold into whispers of white flowers and citrus zest on the palate. A round, bright wine with a crisp acidity, enjoy a bottle with your favorite Asian-style shellfish dish.
  • Winemaking

    Harvested by night to keep the freshness, each vineyard lot is gently pressed & fermented separately at low temperature for more finesse & purity. Some selected lots are fermented and aged in French oak barrels to bring richness & complexity. After 6 months of maturation on lees, ageing with battonage (for the creamy flavor), each component is blended to create the Fortant signature..

  • Nose

    Generous, complex nose with notes of fresh apricot and grapevine flowers.

  • Palate

    Rich and smooth on the palate boasting lovely tropical fruit flavors.
