Region: Riverland, SA
100% Bianco d’Alessano Pet Nat
Originally from Puglia, the boot heel of Italy, Bianco d'Alessano has made its new home on the sun drenched banks of the River Murray and is the only planting of the variety in Australia! Easy drinking, packed with tropical fruits - and a little spritz to make you smile - pop the top and embrace the weirdness.
Fermented in 2 tonne stainless fermenters with wild vineyard yeast, the wine was bottled under crown seal to finish ferment, resulting in the Petillant Naturel, lightly sparkling style. The nose is beautifully clean for a bottle fermented wine, bright citrus mixed with bready, almost croissant-like aromas. The palate is creamy and smooth, with lush tropical fruits like passionfruit and pineapple sweetness and tang. The lovely line of acid means the wine finishes dry and moreish, perfect for summer picnic in the park or with freshly shucked oysters.
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.
Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
This wine is fermented spontaneously.
