Place: Riverland, Sa
Variety: Bianco d'Alessano
We’re always taken aback by the price-quality ratio of these wines. They punch well above their weight and are truly going from strength to strength each year. Alongside a few other Riverland growers/winemakers, Delinquente is putting the region on the map for well-made and absolutely guzzleable wine.
There is only one planting of Bianco d'Alessano—a late-ripening aromatic grape—in Australia, and some of it goes straight into this guzzleable 9.5% pet nat. Slightly savoury, slightly saline, slightly citric, the combination of these qualities greater than the parts. Chill it right down and watch it evaporate!
