Delinquente Weeping Juan Pet Nat 2020
- Vegan Suitable
RegionLoxton, Riverland, SA
Dryer and more textural than previous years, the nose hints at sweet berries mixed with an undercurrent of lime and sea spray. The palate opens again with the fruit sweetness, almost raspberry lolly like fruitiness, but is super dry, the acid accentuated by the fine spritz of bubbles, whilst the Lagrein provides a slightly earthy, moreish element. Summer party vibe, but with depth and interest.
Tasting notes from the winery for Delinquente Weeping Juan Pet Nat 2020
The party is back! This pink pet nat brings together red and white – Vermentino and Nero d’Avola. Traditionally grown hundreds of miles apart, this naturally sparkling, rag tag blend of grapes from the Riverland will bless your palate with its spritzy energy, sweet dark fruit, and bracing acidity.
Each variety was picked and fermented separately, the final wine was blended and bottled just prior to the Nero d’Avola finishing ferment to create the Petillant Naturel style sparkling. The Nero d’Avola turns the good times up to 11 with its super bright red fruit cutting through the citrus, stonefruit push of the Vermentino. Hazy, bright pink in the glass, the nose gives wonderful yeastiness, super clean, like walking into the kitchen while mum is baking fruit toast. The fine spritz just accentuates the fun vibes, a wine made for all-day and all-night crushing.
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.
