Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

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 barrels to bring richness & complexity. After 6 months of surlies aging with battonage (for the creamy flavour), each component is blended to create the Fortant de France signature.
