Delinquente Tuff Nutt is clean, lean and refreshing as hell.
It firmly sits in the thirst quenching zone. Ripe tropical fruits burst from the glass on the nose, while the palate leans into the citrus spectrum. Preserved lemon, briney saltiness, but again with a lemon curd creaminess that satisfy just so. Acid for days, and at 9.5% ABV, this wine performs a true disappearing act from the bottle.
Fermented in stainless steel with wild vineyard yeast. The wine was bottled under crown seal to finish ferment, resulting in the Petillant Naturel, lightly sparkling style. The Sherwood Estate in Loxton North, owned by the Proud family, has the only planting of Bianco d’Alessano in Australia – a late ripening, aromatic variety that holds acid beautifully and is completely at home in the hot dry Riverland climate.
