A gem from our Riverland grower. A light-to-medium-bodied style, moreish & spicy, showing a juicy red-berried palate, a long savoury line, and crunchy acidity. Best over short to medium term. Only 170 dozen made.
An organically-grown gem from our Riverland grower – Ricca Terra Farms. Handpicked, cold soak 4 days, 20% wholebunch wild ferment, then matured in aged oak for ten months. Unfined, unfiltered, minimum sulphur for protection.
Deep ruby red colour. Aromas of mocha and spicy plum, floral and herbal tea characters. Gravelly and savoury with earthy red-fruits, dried herbs (sage/bay) and a dash of pencilly, caramelly oak. Slight citrus elements, some perfume and dustiness for lift.
Red and black-fruits head up the palate – some dark cherry and plum – along with toasted spice nuances. Structurally sound and upright – tannins are fine-grained and some good crunchy acidity rounds out the finish.
This wine is a medium-bodied, savoury dry red, ideal for year-round drinking.
