Delinquente - 2021 'Pretty Boy' Rosato

2021 'Pretty Boy' Rosato

Nero D'Avola
Riverland, SA

He may have a hair dryer and a raw steak tattooed on his face, but 'Pretty Boy' is pretty on the inside. This Nero D'Avola – the famous black grape of Sicily – is at home in the hot, dry climate of the Riverland just as it is in the land of Don Corleone. Made in full bodied Rosato style, it smells of sweet strawberries but is crisp, dry, savoury and luscious on the palate. Acid on point. A more full flavoured Pretty Boys than previous years. Serve over ice or straight from the fridge.

Greg Grigoriou makes minimal intervention wines from unique Southern Italian grape varieties growing in the Riverland, from two organically farmed vineyards. Though this region is often associated with high volume, low-quality wines, Delinquente shows us the vast vinous potential when the right fruit in the right climate with the right farming and the right vinification come together in perfect synergy.
