About

Ash Ratcliff is one of the sharpest minds growing grapes in Australia with a vision towards a new Riverland. The "Bullets Before Cannonballs" concept is something Ash has used extensively during his time in the Riverland. The idea being, you shoot loads of 'bullets' - small trials of new varieties - and when you see one excelling you light the fuse on a cannonball and go deep on that variety.

It's a methodology which is yielding great results for Ricca Terra Farms. This wine is a fiery blend of the red varieties that have excelled for him so far: Nero d’Avola, Lagrein, Negroamaro, and Tempranillo.

The finished wine is flush with dark fruits and exotic spice. It also impressed the judges at the 2017 AAVWS taking home two Trophies, including Best Blend amongst the leading alternative variety wines in the country. Great value to be had here and a super versatile red for any night of the week.

What It Tastes Like

It's all juicy red and black fruits, licorice and dark chocolate. Loads of sweet exotic spice spread far and wide through every inch of the mouth. Smooth velvety tannins and very high gluggability factor. Great little red here from Ash and his crew. Anytime, anywhere.
