BUY  |  STOCKISTS  |  TECH SHEET

The traditional Vin Doux Naturel of the region, Rivelsaltes Grenat was an ambition from the start, a dream of producing small quantities of an outstanding quality fortified red wine.

Immortelle Rivesaltes begins its ferment in an open-top 500 litre barrel and then is fortified 5 days into fermentation, arresting it and leaving the wine with a wonderful sense of sweetness from the unfermented grape juice and a spirity kick.  Aged for 12 months before release.

Tasting Note: 
Deep red fruit flavours make this the perfect partner to chocolate desserts.

Alcohol – 18
Residual Sugar – 65g/l

Vin Doux Naturel traditionnel de la région, Rivelsalts Grenat était une ambition dès le départ, un rêve de produire de petites quantités d’un vin rouge fortifié de qualité exceptionnelle. Immortelle Rivesaltes commence sa fermentation dans un fût ouvert de 500 litres, puis est fortifiée 5 jours après la fermentation, l’arrêtant et laissant le vin avec une merveilleuse sensation de douceur du jus de raisin non fermenté et un coup de fouet. Vieilli pendant 12 mois avant la libération.

Note de dégustation:
Les saveurs de fruits rouges profonds en font le partenaire idéal des desserts au chocolat.
