Hermitage Domaine Des Tourettes 'Delas' 2012

 

Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Syrah
Wine Region: Rhone Valley

Winemaking: Not certified organic, vegan

 

Tasting Notes: The colour shows brilliant, deep red hues. The nose is powerful and complex, expressing blackberries, spices and leather. On the palate it’s firm but silky, with a tightly-knit tannic structure that is the hallmark of a great wine.

 

The Estate: The winery was founded in 1835 by Philippe Delas and Charles Audibert, and passed on to Philippes two sons (one of which married Charlesdaughter). They changed the name of the maison to Delas Frères in the early 1920s and established this name as one synonymous with high quality. In 1993 Delas Frères became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and pursuit of excellence. 2020 saw the completion of a new state of the art winery and house in Tain Hermitage where all of the top appellation wines are vinified and aged, underlying their commitment to producing the highest quality wines. Situated in the northern Rhône Valley, the Hermitage appellation is renowned for its exceptional terroir, characterized by its granite soils and favorable climate, which contribute to the unique qualities of the wines produced there.

The winemaking techniques at Domaine de Tourettes emphasize traditional methods, with a strong focus on quality and the expression of terroir. This includes meticulous vineyard management, hand harvesting, and careful vinification processes.
