Wild fermented in stainless steel, Nero d’Avola is a native Sicilian variety that is perfect suited to the hot, dry climate of the Riverland. This year, with the hotter conditions and earlier pick date, we see a more textural, crunchier style, whilst still exhibiting the aromatic, lush characteristics we love to show in the wine.
After crushing, the fruit was left to soak on skins for 7 hours, giving the wine it’s bright, almost fluorescent pale pink colour. The 2019 Rosato brings back all the elements that make this wine such a favourite, lush strawberries and cream on the nose; super refreshing raspberry and rose water on the front palate, proceeded by an acidic, savoury crunch that keeps the wine fresh and moreish. It’s everything we want to see in a rose, and about as smashable as it gets. - Delinquente Wine Co.
