Res Fortes Cotes du Roussillon White 2018
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Maury|
Inspired by childhood summers with his wine-loving grandfather in the South of France, Moritz Bak’s fascination with the world of wine began. Devoting himself to the study of wine and winemaking, he worked at some of the world’s greatest vineyards, and when he was ready returned to the south of France armed with both knowledge and a vision. Having carefully selected and nurtured his vines, he produced his first vintage in 2014. Acclaim and awards soon followed. This passionate mountaineer’s winery Res Fortes is named in tribute to his own love for a hard climb and the fortitude of those like him who have followed in the footsteps of the ancient Romans who scaled and civilized this highland corner of southern France. As well as the wines themselves, Res Fortes’ elegant bottles and label design prove that the most modern and sophisticated drinking experience can grow from the toughest terrain.
A blend of Macabeu (60%), Grenache Blanc (20%), and Grenache Gris (20%) makes this a great easy drinking, dry, summer wine.
A very unique finish with white melon and pear, round and ripe, mineral acidity, and dry. This wine is drinking well now, is best served chilled, and is ideal to drink on its own. It also drinks well with grilled pork, chicken, fish and is the perfect wine to impress and give an experience to friends bbq or summer dinners.
