Delinquente Tuff Nutt Bianco d'Alessano Pet Nat 2020
- Vegan Suitable
RegionLoxton, Riverland, SA
The nose is beautifully clean for a bottle fermented wine, bright citrus mixed with bready, almost croissant-like aromas. The palate this vintage opens tight and fresh, before giving way to the classic tropical fruit characters of lychee, honeydew and pineapple that we have come to expect from this wine. The acid line cuts through this fruitiness, indicated by the 9% Alcohol, giving the wine an almost savoury, moreish finish, perfect for summer picnic in the park or with freshly shucked oysters.
Tasting notes from the winery for Delinquente Tuff Nutt Bianco d'Alessano Pet Nat 2020
The nose is beautifully clean for a bottle fermented wine, bright citrus mixed with bready, almost croissant-like aromas. With more age in the vines we are seeing more depth and intensity on the palate than ever before – the tropical fruits are still there, but there is a saline, herbaceous, moreishness that invites both quick drinking and deep thought. The persistent fizz keeps everything in fun territory though, a wine perfect for brunch, lunch picnics or sunset on the porch.
Bianco d’Alessano is an uncommon variety from Puglia in Southern Italy, with the Loxton vineyard the only planting in 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.
SMALL BATCH. SINGLE VINEYARD. HANDMADE.
Organically grown, Southern Italian grape varieties from the Riverland, fermented with wild yeast and minimal intervention in the winery.
Delinquente is “delinquent” in Italian, which speaks to our desire to always buck the trend, break rules and do things our way. Sometimes you’ve got to heed the call of the wild child within. Sometimes you’ve got to go home with a bunch of grapes who’re ugly as sin.
