From Delinquente:

Montepulciano is an Italian variety creating a new life for itself in the sun-soaked, ancient soils of The Riverland. Harvested from two different patches on the Bassham Family Organic vineyard, about 9 days apart, each pick was fermented separately and blended together just prior to bottling.

With dark, brambly fruit, cracking acidity and rustic tannins, it’s a gutsy wine, full of life, love, and plenty of stories to tell. The thick skins provides a lovely, dark purple colour, and while the nose gives a feeling of power and intensity, the palate opens with a lovely, puckering fruit character, like a basket of freshly picked mixed berries. The finish brings that tannin and those grippy, savoury elements back into play, while the acid keeps the freshness and length going. Pasta, pizza, BBQ, Salt and Vinegar Pringles – whatever, it’s a wine for all seasons.
