Harvested by night to keep the freshness,each vineyard lot is fermented separately after a 4 days pre-fermentation cold soak which brings bright fruit & color and silky tannins. Some selected lots are fermented with French oak for richness and length. After gentle pressing and 3 months of ageing on fine lees for maturation, each component is blended to create the Fortant signature.
Intense nose with notes of blueberry and violet.
Round and delectable on the palate with lovely flavors of freshly picked black fruit.
