Delinquente, 'Tuff Nutt' Bianco d’Alessano Pét-Nat 2020
Bright Pet Nat with tingly acid and citrus fruit core. Great Aussie summer juice.
Delinquente are producing wines of vitality, freshness and intrigue from the Riverland region of South Australia. Fermented in stainless steel with wild vineyard yeast, the wine was bottled under crown seal to finish ferment, resulting in the Petillant Naturel, lightly sparkling style. Bright citrus mixed with bready, almost croissant-like aromas. The palate opens tight and fresh, before giving way to the classic tropical fruit characters of lychee, honeydew and pineapple. So moreish.

Delinquente Wine Co
Con-Greg’s idea for Delinquente Wine Co was to take advantage of the Riverland’s small vineyards planted with Southern Italian varieties, which are suited to the region’s dry Mediterranean climate. He buys in grapes from trusted growers who work organically, and is pretty much hands-off in the winery. All his wines are small-batch and single-vineyard, fermented in stainless steel with wild yeast. His aim is to make wine that is pure, drinkable and delicious
