2020 Delinquente Hell Rosé
This Hell Rose is one that is always a bit of a mish-mash of parcels of wine that in any other situation would never be put together – but through tasting, experimentation and a bit of luck, all sort of work!
Each variety was handpicked and whole bunch pressed to stainless steel tank for fermentation. Once sugar dry, the wine is sent to old French barriques for malo and maturation for about 8 months, before racking, a touch of SO2, and bottling. A wine that is all about drinkability. Stone fruit sweetness from the Malvasia. Acidity and saline savouriness from the Albarino and Fernao Pires (a really cool Portuguese variety we have just started playing with). Red fruit and that touch of structure from the Sangiovese.
