Delinquinte Pretty Boy 2021
Delinquente owner/winemaker Con-Greg Grigoriou describes the Pretty Boy Rosato as a wine with "the swagger of Mick Jagger and the looks of Jussy T."
This is Nero d'Avola, grown in the Riverland - a warm, dry climate where the variety thrives. Con-Greg makes it in a pale, dry style. It's a fun, bright and moreish pink wine built to accompany good times.
The 2021 Rosato brings back all the elements that make this wine such a favourite, but the cooler vintage has seen everything turned up to 11 - lush strawberries and cream on the nose; super refreshing raspberry and rose water on the front palate. But it’s the savoury notes that are really shining through on this wine and continue to impress – herbaceous, acid driven and moreish to keep it all working together. It’s everything we want to see in a rose, and about as smashable as it gets.
Wild fermented in stainless steel, after crushing the fruit was left to soak on skins for 6 hours, giving the wine it’s the lovely blush pink colour – maybe a little more intensely pink this year than previously. Nero d’Avola is a native Sicilian variety that is perfect suited to the hot, dry climate of the Riverland.
