This wine makes me happy to be in business, a great Montepulciano wine made in SA. Ashley from Ricca Terra has come up with the goods the 2021 is drinking very well. - Frank

This easy to drink red has a beautiful deep red colour, flavours of red cherry and plums with nice smooth tannins structure. This wine is medium to full body and won’t disappoint any big red drinker at 14.0% alc.

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.
