Winemaker Notes

Montepulciano isn't a common variety, and the Riverland ain't exactly the sexiest place to grow grapes. But boy does this Monte pack a punch! In every way this gang of grapes gets together and lets loose; pummelling your eyes with its deep plum colour, peppering your nose with bitter-sweet mulberries and cramming your mouth with a creamy texture that belies its fruity finish.

Lots of morello cherries here on this montepulciano, but also vanilla and tobacco. Full-bodied and round with some good acidity. Drink now. Screw cap.

Delinquente  Winery Image
Delinquente is produced by 29 years old owner/ winemaker Con-Greg who was born and raised on a vineyard in the Riverland, his father the manager of production at one of the local bulk wineries. Con-Greg's aim is to showcase just how good wines from the Riverland can be if you use grape varieties and clones that are suited to the climate and soil type, and treat the vines with respect.

The approach is to focus on sustainable grape varieties that need less water and thrive in the Riverland’s warm, dry climate. They are organically grown, single vineyard fruit, all sourced from a small family vineyard.

This is complemented with a minimal intervention winemaking approach including natural, open ferments and no adds in the winery besides a touch of SO2.

The wines are easy drinking, smashable, silky, elegant and fruit forward wines – but with a hidden, subtle complexity and structure.

Quite the powerhouse region thanks to its proximity to the Murray River (and thus irrigation potential), Riverland produces over half of South Australia’s total annual harvest. While its warm Mediterranean climate promotes large volume production, many smaller, premium producers abound. Australia’s usual suspects—Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet—do great but a continuing local push for heat-loving Italian varieties like Vermentino and Nero d’Avola promises future diversity.

Consistently enticing and enjoyable, Montepulciano enjoys great popularity throughout central and southern Italy. Montepulciano is the second most planted red variety in Italy after Sangiovese, though it is most associated with the region of Abruzzo where it achieves its highest potential. A tiny bit grows in California, Argentina and Australia as well. Somm Secret— Montepulciano is also the name of a village in Tuscany where, confusingly, they don’t grow the Montepulciano grape at all! Sangiovese shines in yet another Tuscan village, here making the reputable wine called Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
