An intense, bright colour, with a golden hue. To the nose the specific aromas of the grape variety are to the fore, with apricots, peaches, exotic fruits and preserverd citrus fruit. The palate is both smooth and fresh, finishing on dried fruits hint.

Founded 160 years ago in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône, Delas Freres today crafts world class wines from both northern and southern Rhône.

Tending the steep sloping vineyards, which total some 30 hectares of vines, the team adapt their growing practices to each plot of vines to let the terroir of the Rhône shine through in the wines.

Crafted by winemaker Jacques Grange (who is originally from Burgundy), the wines from Delas Freres epitomise finesse and elegance. Recent vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have bee lauded in the press for their intensity of flavour and excellent value.

This wine is been made from grapes grown on the slopes of the Pont du Gard, on limestone-clay soils formed in the Villafranchian stage.

The majority of the grapes are harvested at night in order to take advantage of the cooler temperature at the time of the vatting. After destemming, the grapes are transferred to the tanks for low-temperature maceration and skin contact.

In order to keep the wines fresh, and to bring them balance and delicacy, they do not undergo malolactic fermentation. They are held in stainless steel tanks until bottling time, which takes place after a light fining and filtration, ensuring that the wine remains stable.

Delicious served with crunchy green salads, fresh fish and chicken dishes.
