Delinquente, Tuff Nutt Pet Nat, Riverland, Australia
If you look outside the mainstream sea of “big wine” there’s a whole lot more going in Australia than blockbuster Shiraz and supercharged Chardonnay. Con-Greg, winemaker at Delinquente, uses Italian grape varieties well suited to the Mediterranean climate of the Riverland region to make fun, juicy, and delicious wines. They’re not simple by any means but they are super enjoyable, or as Con-Greg puts it, “smashable”. The typically irreverent and eye-catching labels are by Adelaide street artist Ankles.
The lesser known Puglian grape, Bianco d'Alessano and this is the only planting of these grape in Aus. A soft sparkly pet nat that has fermented to dry in the bottle, expect bags of tropical fruit delights.Producer - Delinquente
