Additional Information

The Montepulciano was harvested from two different patches on the Bassham Family Organic vineyard, on separate days about a week apart. Each pick was fermented separately and blended together just prior to bottling. The earlier pick carried a lovely tart acidity and green energy, usually associated with whole bunch fermented wines, while the later pick gives palate weight and the deeper fruit character for drinkability – the final blend bringing both parcels together in a really awesome way. The idea with this wine is to make an uncomplicated red wine that provides flavour and energy. The thick skins provides a lovely, dark purple colour, and while the nose gives a feeling of power and intensity, the palate opens with a lovely, puckering fruit character, like a basket of freshly picked, maybe slightly underripe, but delicious mixed berries. The finish brings that tannin and those grippy, savoury elements back into play, while the acid keeps the freshness and length going. Pasta, pizza, BBQ, Salt and Vinegar Pringles – whatever, it’s a wine for all seasons.
something
Delinquente Wine Co makes small batch, minimal intervention wines from Southern Italian grape varieties grown in The Riverland, South Australia. Sourcing fruit from two organically farmed vineyards, my aim is to make wines that focus on drinkability – picking early for low alcohols and high natural acidity, and clean, fresh fruit characters. Having grown up in The Riverland, I want to make wines that shine, and that the region can be proud of. By focusing on Southern Italian varieties such as Vermentino and Nero d’Avola, I want to make wines that are not only delicious, but that are more sustainable, as these varieties are naturally more heat tolerant and drought resistant than the Burgundy and Bordeaux varieties traditionally planted in the region. More than anything, however, I want to make wines that are true to me, true to the region that they are from, with as little intervention as possible, and that are as enjoyable as possible for those drinking them.
