Vinification of the Fortant de France Terroir d'Altitude Chardonnay
The basis for the balanced Terroir d'Altitude Chardonnay from France are grapes from the Chardonnay grape variety. After the grape harvest, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in small wood and large wood at controlled temperatures. Once fermentation is complete, the organically produced Terroir d'Altitude Chardonnay is aged for several more months in oak barrels. Once the wine is finished, the Terroir d'Altitude Chardonnay is gently harmonized.
