Delas Freres / 2016 Cotes du Rhone "Saint Esprit

This Product is Temporarily Out of stock.

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Rhone Valley.

GRAPE VARIETIES: Syrah (majority) and Grenache.

UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

VINEYARDS: The vineyards are influenced by the Cotes du Rhone’s Mediterranean climate and prevailing “Mistral” wind. This harsh wind – both necessary and beneficial to the vines’ development – is caused by the difference between the Southern and Northern Rhône’s atmospheric pressures. Highly seasonal rainfall, hot temperatures and abundant sunshine are also the characteristics of this region.

WINEMAKING: The entire crop is destemmed and fermentation takes place in closed vats for 15 days. Daily pumping over ensures proper extraction.

The wine is kept in stainless steel vats in order to preserve the fruit aromas in the wine. Bottling takes place after 8 months of ageing.

TASTING NOTES: Deep, plum coloured hue with a classically “Syrah” nose. The wine is full of aromas of violets, liquorice and has a full, rounded palate with delicate tannins.

FOOD PAIRING: "Provencale" style cuisine such as stuffed tomatoes and aubergines, mixed grills and barbecues.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.

As such, please allow between 7 and 10 days for your delivery to arrive.
