Chateau Fortia Reserve Chateauneuf du Pape 2013

The Reserve Chateauneuf du Pape from Chateau Fortia is a powerful and complex red wine with a lovely texture. It is full flavoured and has a wonderful long finish. Made from a blend os Syrah and Mourvedre this is a Chateauneuf du Pape that can be drunk now but will also benefit from careful ageing.

Chateau Fortia is a symbolic estate in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, both for its location and its roots that are closely linked to that of its appellation. In 1929 due to the efforts of Baron Pierre Leroy, Chateauneuf du Pape became the first appellation with a set of winemaking regulations. Today his descendants carry on the long tradition.

Vinification
The grapes are de-stalked. Fermentation in temperature controlled tanks with a long maceration lasting about 21 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in large oak barrels. After racking the wine is aged for 12 months in oak casks followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Note
Traditional but modern style of Chateauneuf du Pape showing plenty of liquorice and spice with fine tannins and a lovely purity of Syrah fruit through to a long and sustained finish

Everyday Serving Suggestion
Chateau Fortia Reserve Chateauneuf du Pape is best served at room temperature to accompany strong flavoured meat dishes, game and mature cheese.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
