2021 Delinquente 'High Crimes' Arinto, Albarino 1.5L Cask
Most of Con-Greg’s wines from Riverland in South Australia are focused around Italiano varieties, but grapes native to warmer parts of Spain and Portugal grow equally as well in this warm dry region.
As Con-Greg puts it- “Arinto and Albarino are the pick of the Iberian whites and complement each other incredibly well in a blend. Arinto is a standout variety for us, maintaining its highwire acidity through the most glaring of heatwaves, whilst always bringing a structured, layered, complex stone fruit and orchard fruit profile. The Albarino benefited most from the cooler season, really showcasing its bright lemon/grapefruit citrus and mineral characters, and brings a lovely pop to this blend. Box wine done right, an acid driven, moreish, textural white perfect for beachside grilling” – Delinquente Wine Co.
