This pink pet nat is 90% Vermentino and 10% Nero d'Avola from the Bassham Family organic and biodynamic vineyard in Barmera. Each variety was picked and fermented separately, the final wine blended and bottled just prior to the Nero d’Avola finishing ferment. The Nero turns the good times up to 11 with that star-bright red fruit cutting through the citrus, stone fruit push of the Vermentino. A wine made for all-day and all-night crushing.

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.
