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 carefully and gently pressed, keeping only the free run & very low pressure juices for the pale and delicate color. The lots are then fermented separately at low temperature for more finesse & purity. After 1 month of maturation on fine lees, ageing with battonage (for the texture), each component is blended to create the Fortant signature.
Vivacious nose with notes of redcurrant and thyme.
Delicate on the palate, revealing lovely citrus and red berry flavors and boasting a long fresh finish.
