About The Wine

After supplying grapes to some of the country's most exciting new wave winemakers, Ash Ratcliff has now released his own label from his eclectic Ricca Terra Farms. This is a blend of some of Ash's favourite white Mediterranean varieties: Vermentino and Fiano.

The vines were pruned by hand, picked by hand, co-fermented and brought to bottle with love, care and patience. The Bronco Buster is made as a light, smashable wine with enough savoury elements to marry perfectly with a wide array of cuisine.

The blend may look to be a little 'out there' but the wine itself is oddly familiar. Yet another great release from Ash and his team!

About Ricca Terra

Ashley Ratcliff is one of the Riverland's most forward-thinking viticultural minds. After leaving Yalumba to set up his own Riverland vineyard, he began investigating the potential for obscure alternative varieties in his chosen region. Varieties that retain acidity in the heat, such as Fiano and Arinto have struck a cord, as well as Nero d'Avola, Negroamaro and Tinta Barocca which thrive in warmer climes.

His Ricca Terra Vintners label showcases these interesting varieties and their suitability to our climate. Whether straight varietal wines or creative blends, every wine is deliciously approachable and superb value for money. 

Ash is one of the most important viticulturalists in Australia and his passion and knowledge are vital to the future of the Australian industry. Ricca Terra was named one of the Top Ten Best New Wineries in the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Mediterranean white grape varietal blend (Fiano & Vermentino).

In a life before wine, Ricca Terra Farms’ Ashley Ratcliff was a horseman. Growing up on a farm in the Adelaide Hills, he moved to a small town outside Fort Worth, Texas, USA, where his job was breaking in wild horses. There are close parallels between breaking in a horse and growing & making alternative grape varieties. Vision, knowledge, trust and patience are required if success is expected, whether that be wine or horse. Get it wrong and you are sure to be bucked off!

    Easy drinking

    Fiano/Greco/Arinto/Vermentino blend is great! Really fleshy white stone fruits; peaches, nectarines, honeydew melon, nice zippy acidity. Quite fruit rich but acidity keeps it in check. Not mind-blowing in terms of complexity but easy drinking and very good value. Will buy again!!

    This is a cracking white

    This is an interesting blend, very smashable white wine. Its very different than the stock standard whites on the market currently. Will be buying more of this product especially as the Melbourne weather warms up.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
