A new one from the Ricca Terra Farms home property. An ancient Balkans variety found flourishing in the Riverland, of which we are certain there is no other in Australia! Fleshy tropical and citrus characters, creamy and a long finish.
Yep, you heard right – Slankamenka Bela, an ancient Balkans grape variety found flourishing in the Riverland of Australia. Or Bela for short..
Handpicked grapes from Ricca Terra Farms family vineyard, wild-fermented in stainless steel tank before bottling fresh in July. Unfined, Unfiltered.
Some tropical pineapple and guava on the nose, also apple/pear – fresh and zesty. A textural palate, a touch creamy – showing stonefruit, guava, quince and nashi pear. Hints of spice and vanilla weave in and out, with a note of nuttiness. Excellent length of palate.
Enjoyed with or without food.
