DeLille Cellars Chaleur Estate Blanc 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chaleur Estate Blanc is another terrific white from this estate that readers need to seek out. Bitter citrus, white flowers, mint and leafy herbs all give way to a rich, textured, medium-bodied white that has solid mid-palate concentration, nicely integrated acidity and a great finish. I like it today, but it should drink beautifully for at least 3-4 years, if not longer.
Wine SpectatorBright and tangy, with passion fruit and fig flavors on a lively frame, lingering nicely. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now. 3,500 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastSauvignon Blanc makes up three-quarters of this blend with the balance Sémillon. The aromas offer notes of herb, toast, nut oil and star fruit. The elegantly styled flavors of kiwi and spice are creamy in feel with a lingering finish.
