From the Riverland project. A light-bodied, red-fruited lush combo of savoury & sweet, showing complex flavours from earth/meat to spice/florals; with snappy acidity and a seductive, moreish palate. Enjoy it young. Only 175 dozen made.
Single vineyard from Ricca Terra Farms in Barmera, South Australia. Hand-picked, wild-fermented (20% whole-bunch) and matured in aged oak for five months. Unfined, unfiltered, minimum sulphur for protection.
Ruby-red colour. A very pretty bouquet of florals leads to aromas of dark cherry and strawberry… dusty talc, smoky graphite. Exotic black plum, blueberry, savoury black olive. Herbal notes of lavender, sage & oregano; eastern spices of cinnamon & cardamom. Earth, leather and spice… forest floor; tar and char.
Red-fruits dominate the palate – juicy strawberry, sour cherry, sweet roasted tomato; also baked quince, rhubarb and plum. Eastern spice and white pepper. Soft, light style that is best enjoyed with food. Chill slightly if desired.
