The wine
Wine and the sacred have been closely connected down through the centuries. The bottle for Jas Dellange depicts Jacob's Struggle with the Angel and epitomises the tireless work of the winegrower in the face of nature. This work is blessed when all the requisite conditions have been fulfilled, as with this wine.
Terroir
Our vines put down roots at average elevations of 300m, on slopes and terraces with a geological history dating back more than 100 million years. This unique soil, comprising skeletal limestone and Miocene sand, provides the noble material for growing a racy, refined and elegant rosé.
Vinification
The vineyards selected for Jas Dellange are full of youthfulness and their clusters laden with crisp fruit. The fruit is picked early in the morning to take advantage of the cool night time temperatures and preserve their delicate citrus aromas and very fresh, delicate nose. Its supple, voluptuous texture reveals an extremely elegant rosé. To make this rosé, we use a subtle blend of direct-to-press and cold skin-contact maceration to achieve finesse and volume. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures so that aroma can be fully expressed.
Maturing
The wine is matured on fine lees to fully retain freshness and gain volume.
