AWW Case - 6 D2 Heart & 6 Chaleur Blanc
2016 D2 "Heart Label
Since our founding in 1992, DeLille Cellars has partnered with select charities and helped to raise more than one million dollars for these organizations. The DeLille Cellars D2 “Heart” label is designed specifically for our support of various non-profits, and we label a limited quantity of bottles in red each year.
2016 D2, the 25th vintage of this remarkable cuvee, leaps from the glass with an impressive and inviting abundance of fruit aromas, including pomegranate, fresh blueberry and currant. Restrained oak influence enrobes the fruit, adding essences of cocoa nibs and cherry cordial. Dense and vibrant on the palate, with a pure fruit core, this wine offers elegant tannin and remarkable integration. Incredibly balanced barrel influence and Cabernet presence support an extended finish.
2019 Chaleur Blanc
This energetic, canary yellow wine presents a complex nose with aromas of grapefruit, golden hay, lemon zest, petrichor and pastry dough. 2019 Chaleur Blanc offers fresh fruit flavors of apricot and white peach on the palate, deliciously balanced with savory herb notes of basil and tarragon. This vintage is well proportioned throughout, with integrated barrel notes and the cuvee’s traditional crisp acidity.
