Delinquente makes small batch wines, wild yeast fermentation, minimal intervention,
organically grown Southern Italian grape varieties, grown in the Riverland, South Australia.
Born and raised in the Riverland, surrounded by vineyards and the mighty Murray River. Delinquente is their attempt at making the best wine we can from the place where they grew up. Organically grown, minimal intervention, honest, hand-made wines that not only are great fun to drink, but represent the sun, the red dirt and uniquely Australian terroir of the Riverland.
Dark, brambly fruit, cracking acidity and rustic tannins, it’s a gutsy wine, full of life, love, and plenty of stories to tell. 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 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.
