Grape(s): Nero d'Avola
The Nero d’Avola Rosato truly is a unique wine. This native Sicilian variety is perfectly suited to the warm, dry climate of the Riverland, producing wines that are full of fruit flavor that retain natural acidity. Delinquente decided to take advantage of these traits when creating this Rosato. After crushing, the fruit was left to soak on skins for 12 hours, giving the wine it’s bright, almost fluorescent pale pink color. The 2017 Rosato is all strawberries and cream on the nose; the palate driven by luscious raspberries and driving acid, giving a lovely, clean finish.
