90% Vermentino | 10% Montepulciano
Petillant Naturel. Naturally Sparkling. It's unfiltered, cloudy and funky, but its light, delicious and so much fun. Spritzy and yeasty, with bracing acidity bouncing off sweet dark plums and berries, this ragtag blend of grapes from The Riverland is sure to bless your palate, and maybe get you into a little trouble too.
Each variety was picked and fermented separately, the final wine was blended and bottled just prior to the Montepulciano finishing ferment to create the Petillant Naturel style sparkling. The combination of these varieties creates an interesting mix of fruit flavours, not just on the nose but especially the palate, with the Montepulciano adding beautiful sweet red berry flavours to the citrus, acidic hit of the Vermentino. Pleasantly creamy mouthfeel gives way to the spritzy, dry, acid driven finish, Weeping Juan has summer party vibe written all over his face.
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.
