Delinquente Wine Co. (Riverland, Australia)

Wild fermented in stainless steel, the wine also spent 4 weeks on fine lees, stirred twice weekly, giving it a beautiful, textural edge not often found in Australian Vermentino’s. Bold and bright, a distinct passionfruit, tropical vibe presents up front, a new-ish feel for the Vermentino this year. Structural and herbaceous – lemon thyme grassiness holds fort on the palate with a subdued citrus, stonefruit push providing a counterpoint in the background. Classic Vermentino on the finish – briney, seaspray savouriness again turned up a little – lots of flavour, lovely acidity, really putting itself out there this year.
