About The Wine

Delinquent owner/winemaker Greg Grigoriou describes the Pretty Boy Rosato as a wine with "the swagger of Mick Jagger and the looks of Jussy T."

This is Nero d'Avola, grown in the Riverland - a warm, dry climate where the variety thrives.

Greg makes it in a pale, dry style. It's a fun, bright and moreish pink wine built to accompany good times.

About Delinquente

Greg Grigoriou's mission is simple.

He is trying to make interesting yet smashable wines from some unique fruit growing in the Riverlands.

This stuff is all about fun times and chilled wines. Bright, energetic and full of personality, these wines offer a great entry point for people looking to explore alternative varieties.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Nero d’Avola is a native Sicilian variety that is perfect suited to the hot, dry climate of the Riverland. This year, with the hotter conditions and earlier pick date, we see a more textural, crunchier style, whilst still exhibiting the aromatic, lush characteristics we love to show in the wine. After crushing, the fruit was left to soak on skins for 6 hours, giving the wine its the lovely blush pink colour.

Blend : Nero d'Avola (100%)
ABV : 11.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2022
Bottle Size : 750ml

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The 2020 Rosato brings back all the elements that make this wine such a favourite, lush strawberries and cream on the nose; super refreshing raspberry and rose water on the front palate. But it’s the savoury notes that are really shining through on this wine and continue to impress – herbaceous, acid driven and moreish to keep it all working together. It’s everything we want to see in a rose, and about as smashable as it gets." - Delinquente

The Wine Front

"This drinks a treat. Right in the zone. The good rose zone. Right next to the crap rose zone. Very easy to drink. Cherry juice, faint minty notes, Campari. Lovely stuff. Mouth-watering acidity, great glide to texture, nice puckering finish and trickle of tangy, amaro-like stuff going on. Supple, long, lovely, refreshing, smooth and glorious to drink. Perfect summery, lighter style rose with bang on flavour." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
