Wine Maker Notes
Harvested by night to keep the freshness, each vineyard lot is fermented separately after a 4 days pre-fermentation cold soak which brings bright color & flavor and silky tannins. After gentle pressing, some selected lots are racked directly into small French oak barrels adding depth and complexity. After 10 months of aging, each component is blended to create the Fortant signature.
