The coastal terroir is sunny and bountiful, offering delectable, exuberant wines with flavors of citrus, red and tropical fruits. Boasting relatively young and rather fertile soils, this terroir, with the help of modern viticultural and winemaking techniques, is well-suited to bringing out all of the aromas and flavors of each grape variety as well as those produced during fermentation such as thiols, terpenes and esters.
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 to bring richness. After 3 months of maturation on fine lees, ageing with battonage (for the creamy flavor), each component is blended to create the Fortant signature.
Generous nose with notes of nectarine and acacia.
Round and balanced on the palate with lovely tropical fruit flavors and a long finish.
