Tequila Fortaleza Reposado Tequila 750ml

Quick Overview

Spun, liquid gold in a glass, Fortaleza invites you to drink with aromas that imply raisins, figs, roasted nuts, caramelized agave honey, fragile earth, lemon butter and graceful cinnamon. The flavors do not disappoint, swimming in an oily mouthfeel, with no bitterness that initially show dried fruit and enlarge to graciously include agave, toasted wood, luxurious baking spice and handsome minerals. The finish is vibrant and lively, with lingering residual spice. The art of balancing the wood influence with the fresh nuances of the Blanco is a grand achievement in a Reposado, and Fortaleza is a fantastic example of this harmonious balance.

Tequila Fortaleza Reposado Tequila 750ml

The estate and distillery are located in the heartland of the appellation zone, on the slopes of the 9,560 feet tall extinct Volcán de Tequila, in the small town of Tequila. This is where Guillermo Sauza's family has made tequila for five generations, cinco generaciones. He produces authentic, artisan, handcrafted tequila in his family's 100 plus year old distillery, named la fortaleza or fortitude. The tequila is only made one way; and that is the way of his tatarabuelo, or Great-Great Grandfather, who started making Tequila in 1860.

The old-fashioned stone milling and copper pot still process methodology results in a unique and unequaled tequila with an excellent bouquet, flavorful taste and an incomparable clean and smooth finish. In an old, brick oven, he cooks the agave for 22 hours. Then, the agave is milled, washed with the pure mountain water form the Volcano de Tequila to create an agave juice called mosto. Natural fermentation of the mosto lasts 3 to 4 days in small wood vats and then double distilled using small, copper pot stills.
