Grape(s): Bianco d'Alessano, Malvasia, Negroamaro
While the Delinquente wines focus on Southern and Central Italian varieties, the grapes native to the warmer parts of Spain and Portugal and equally as at home in the sun-drenched Riverland. To this end, the Bassham family have planted a portion of their vineyard to an amalgam of hardy Iberian varieties, which is the focus of our “High Crimes” Bag in Box wines.
The base of this wine is Bianco d'Alessano, the same grapes used in Tuff Nut Pet-Nat, just picked a few weeks later for more depth and structure. That is blended with Malvasia and Negroamaro for colour and a hint of earthy red fruit.
