A supple wine with creamy oak-derived spices a key to its charming personality.
About The Wine
A venture outside of the Adelaide Hills here for young Chris Coulter, and a very successful one at that.
Ricca Terra Farms in the Riverland has become a very happy hunting ground for younger-gen producers seeking interesting varieties that grow well in the warm Australian climate. Grape-grower Ashley Ratcliffe is one of the best in the game and his fruit is invariably very well grown.
Chris took full advantage of the juicy, rich and spicy fruit that Ashley had on offer and turned out a superb wine which delivers cracking value for money at this price. Snap one up while it's still hot!
The C4 is a beautifully crafted cool-climate Tempranillo from the young Chris Coulter.
Made with hand-picked fruit from a single vineyard in the Kenton Valley region in the Adelaide Hills, its bursting with bright red and black fruits and a subtle earthiness. Impeccably balanced with silky tannins, it's a showcase in all that is beautiful about cool-climate fruit.
It's fantastic value for the quality packed inside, and is built to please.
Chris Coulter has worked for numerous Australian wineries on his journey to start his eponymous Adelaide Hills label. He works with predominantly Mediterranean varieties grown in small pockets of the region.
The wines show the thumbprint of winemaking class, cool-climate elegance and an early drinking succulence.
