Chaleur Blanc & D2 in Wood Box
Give the gift of Washington wine with a bottle of D2 and Chaleur Blanc showcased in a locally-made DeLille Cellars wood box.
2020 Chaleur Blanc
Offering hints of tropical fruit, peaches, and lemon zest, the nose of the 2020 Chaleur Blanc is bright and intriguing, with earthy barrel notes of light vanilla and chocolate mint. On the palate, characteristic grapefruit and honeysuckle flavors are carried by vibrant acidity, with barrel aging contributing crème brûlée and baking spices to the wine’s dry finish. Intensely powerful, with oak influence and notable minerality dominating on release, time in bottle will allow the fruit to come forward and showcase the balance of the vintage
Mocha and milk chocolate notes from French oak integrate with beautiful cassis, dried cranberry, and cedar aromas on this 2018 D2. This wine is instantly delicious on the palate with an inviting warm, soft entry. It rapidly builds in intensity of fruit mid-palate, offering remarkable length on the finish, with Red Mountain Cabernet (16% of the blend) apparent in the texture.
D2 is a beautiful partner for lean meats such as flank steak or bison, anything BBQ, and lighter meats such as chicken. Brie or soft-ripened cheeses are also a wonderful match.
Our locally-made wood box with DeLille Cellars logo is the perfect presentation and keepsake item for the collector.
