"A splendid modern rendition with Black Doris plum, violet, hazelnut and warm spice aromas, it's succulent and supple in the mouth offering fleshy texture and soothing mouthfeel. Upfront and plump with a lengthy silky finish, making it highly enjoyable."
- Sam Kim, The Wine Orbit
"If you thought the finest Syrah came from the Rhône, try our Fortant Terrior D’Altitude Syrah. It’s labelled vin de France, but the grapes are all from top vineyards beneath the sun-kissed vineyards of the volcanic hills in the Languedoc region. Meticulous winemaking and a touch of barrel ageing produces this dense, smooth red full of black fruits and herbal spice."

The story of Fortant began in the 1920s with the Skalli family. Originally from Algeria, Robert Skalli fell in love with the wines of southern France. Thus began his affair with the grape, planting vines in his home country and producing wines of generosity from low-yielding vines. In 1961, Robert’s son Francis fell in love with the very same French wines, the Languedoc-Roussillon in particular. The beautiful backdrop of the Med became Fortant HQ, now over four generations. Throughout the Languedoc Roussillon, Fortant employ three unique terroirs and a warm climate to produce a range of excellent wines styles.
