Delinquente Hell Red Blend Riverland SA 

Delinquente wines are small batch, hand-made, organically grown, unique grape varieties from the Riverland, fermented with wild yeast and minimal intervention in the winery and done in the natural wine style.

Greg Grigoriou grew up on a vineyard in the Riverland, South Australia, where his father has managed wineries for over 35 years. A few years ago, while working for an advertising agency in Melbourne, he tasted his first truly interesting Riverland wine and something clicked - why weren’t people producing high-quality wines in his home region?

Greg’s idea for Delinquente Wine Co was to take advantage of the Riverland’s small vineyards planted with Southern Italian varieties, which are suited to the region’s dry Mediterranean climate. He sources grapes from trusted growers many of whom he has know his whole life, who work organically. In the cellar Greg takes this organic philosophy forward, all his wines are small-batch and single-vineyard, fermented in stainless steel with wild yeast and without acid adjustments. His aim is to make wine that is pure, drinkable and delicious - or as he would put it, “smashable”. To complete his vision he recruited local Adelaide street artist Ankles to design the edgy, eye-catching labels.

Amid a sea of “Big Wine”, Delinquente has managed to convey a unique aesthetic and clear point of view: fun, uncomplicated and terroir-driven wines that will challenge people’s perception of the Riverland.

Wine

A coming together of Italian and Portuguese varieties (Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Touriga National), Riverland star Greg Grigorio brings hands-off winemaking the aim to make a super splashy, light and juicy shoulder season red that is as drinkable as hell, but has structure and depth to
stand up to closer inspection. It’s medium bodied, cherry red fruits and spice with bright acid and fine tannins.
