A wonderful fruit-forward blend of Negroamaro and Grenache made to drink now by Ricca Terra - Frank
Ripe forest fruits, rhubarb, with a spicy touch of cinnamon. The colour is a nice light red and the wine has a pleasant floral smell.
Beaujolais nouveau is a French thing! By the law of their land, the Gamay grapes must be harvested by hand. The early released red wine is bottled, only weeks after harvested, and sold at the same time every year, accompanied by fireworks, music and festivals.
Juicy June is Australia’s Beaujolais nouveau! We harvest by hand, ferment in old oak and bottled in the shortest time possible from when the grapes were plucked from the vines. Instead of using Gamay, Negroamaro and Grenache are the varieties of choice. They bring bright and flavoursome characters to this wine.
Let’s forget about the wine for one-second! The label of this wine is amazing. It is happy, colourful and just makes you feel great.

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.
