Dominique Portet calls Australia home, but his bond with Bordeaux cannot be broken. His family has been in the wine industry since 1780 and before. It is actually longer but any official records were lost during the revolution. The earliest remaining document dates back to 1720, relating to the sale of Eaux de Vie by the Portet family to Martell. Fontaine is sagaciously fashioned to emulate the French penchant for leisurely drinking, where Rose sipping is venerated as the most rejuvenating pastime. Savouring a chilled, blush coloured wine on balmy evenings is considered de rigueur amongst the bon vivant of Provence, it's now an essential part of today's relaxed Australian lifestyle.
A blushing, rose coloured wine. Scented with plum, cherry, jujube and spice characters, made complex by lighter fragrances of biscuit and confection, rosewater and glace. A mouthful showing fruits of the forest and spice, ripe black cherry, blueberries, red apple and stalk. Delightfully fruit driven in moreish styling, a fresh, elegant wine with a superb red berry fragrance and delicious drying, savoury finish.
