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 after a 6 hours skin contact to allow the full aroma expression of Muscat. The lots are fermented at low temperature for more finesse & purity and after 3 months of maturation on fine lees, ageing with battonage (for the richness), each component is blended to create the Fortant signature..
Explosive nose redolent of litchi and rose.
Round and delectable on the palate with lovely tropical fruit flavors and a long, soft, smooth finish.
