The Maison Fortant Rosé de Provence is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah from the Côteaux Varois en Provence AOC . The grapes are sourced from partially terraced vineyards on limestone-clay soil at an average altitude of 820 feet. The climate is cool for the region with considerable diurnal/nocturnal temperature differences which allows the wines to maintain perfect balance. Notes of raspberry, peach, and white blossoms.
80% Clairette 20% Roussanne. Intense floral aromas with scents of peach and melon with herbal and mineral notes. This is a complex, crisp and well-balanced wine with flavors of stone fruit, citrus and pear. A food-friendly wine which perfectly matches grilled lamb, pork and assorted cheeses.
A deep red, nearly opaque, hue of garnet fills the sides of the glass. Stunning aromas of succulent dark fruits and ripe cherry are neatly frames by soft French oak. The wine has an amazingly pure entry which instantly coats the entire front of the mouth and leads into a soft mid-palate with refined acid and great structure. Mature tannins round out a long finish that lasts nearly half a minute.
