Delas Chateauneuf Du Pape Red Blend 2019
The vineyards are planted on alluvial reddish clay that lies on terraced slopes of sun-scorched rounded quartz stones.
After destemming and crushing, the grapes are put into concrete vats for alcoholic fermentation. This lasts approximately 10 days and is followed by an 8 to 10 days maceration to complete the extraction. After devatting and pressing, malolactic fermentation is carried out in vats.
The colour is a deep garnet red. To the nose, the "Haute Pierre" cuvée is characterised by strong spicy aromas, which show a rich, powerful body wrapped around with a more delicate yet tightly knit tannic framework. Rich and unctuous on the palate, the finish reveals some intense, liquorice like flavours.
