Grape variety: Vermentino
Harvested with a higher level of sugar and acidity than usual due to the cool weather, Vermentino was immediately de-stemmed and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aged for 4 weeks with good quality lees and bottling with a small amount of antioxidants. Sparkling passion fruit and accented lemon thyme, salty and savory textures overlap to create a high-quality white that fully expresses its original charm.
“DELINQUENTE” 20 22
Founded in 2013 by owner wine maker Con-Greg Grigoriou , who calls himself “Delinquente = misfit / rogue”, Delinquente “Fun Face Wine” is highly popular in Japan. Born in Riverland, South Australia, which is recognized as a production area of table wine in Australia. By creating high quality natural wines that everyone can enjoy from Southern Italian alternative breeds that match the climate of the land, he has successfully transformed his value, and now his wines have gained a solid reputation in Australia. In 2022 , there was hail damage in the late spring, so the production volume was lower than usual, but it was cool overall and the year was harvested after a slow growth period. Maintaining a high natural acidity and well balanced with concentrated fruit, the quality was particularly excellent.
