This wine is aromatic and is the perfect food wine, it pairs well with Italian food such as spaghetti and meatballs or even something savoury like pecorino cheese or salami. - Frank
An intriguing medium body wine with a nice purple hue colour, with notes of red plum and a touch of cedar and a hint of thyme, the flavours are smooth and builds with a pleasant savoury finish.

About The Winery
The Dare to Dream - Ashley & Holly Ratcliff
In 2003, they purchased their first vineyard in Barmera, South Australia. The vision was to plant, nurture and make wine from grape varieties that were best suited to Australia’s warm and dry climate. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot quickly made way for Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano, Tinta Barroca, Fiano, Vermentino and many other Mediterranean grape varieties.
The vision became reality and in 2019, they were awarded a five star rating in the 2020 James Halliday Wine Companion and again in 2021, also listed in the Top 10 upcoming wineries in Australia.
The secret behind Ricca Terra’s premium wines is to use grape varieties that are better suited to the warm and dry climatic conditions of the Riverland. The implementation of viticulture practices that strive for quality, practices such as crop thinning, hand pruning and hand harvesting.
Ricca Terra is recognised for its innovation, leadership and vision, which helps contribute to the future reputation and excitement of Australian Wine.
Winner of the Gourmet Traveller Viticulturist of the Year, they have challenged tradition and forged lasting change with their vineyards & wines.
