Delas Freres is a winery of tradition and renewal. Founded 160 years ago in Côtes du Rhône, the noble estate has been rejuvenated by the passion and energy of Famille Lallier-Deutz. From vineyards between Avignon and the ville of Orange, Haute Pierre is a negociant wine crafted with harvests of fruit by growers who have been supplying Delas for generations. Grapes are crushed, destemmed and vinified in traditional open cement tank fermenters for ten days. Maceration lasts eight to ten days, achieving a high extraction of flavours and essential carbolic acid. After de-vatting and pressing, the wine is treated to a course of malolactic fermentation, followed by fourteen months maturation in large format oak casks.
Deep garnet red in color. Haut Pierre exhibits strong spicy aromas. A rich, powerful palate with a degree of delicacy and finesse over a tightly knit tannic framework. Haut Pierre is rich and unctuous, revealing intense licorice flavours. Ideally suited to the traditional French and provencale style of braises and meats in wine sauce.
