Ricca Terra Bullets Before Cannonballs

That the Riverland region of South Australia is now being re-imagined and reinterpreted is, in part, due to the efforts of one man – Ashley Ratcliffe. As a viticulturist, he knew that not only were some of the best Riverland vineyards undervalued but that many were planted with the wrong varieties for the climate. Ashley's Ricca Terra range are vibrant, quirky, cleverly made wines that have deliciousness as their raison d’etre. More than that though, they are a beacon for the future sustainability of a previously much derided region and it is to Ashley’s credit that other serious producers are now taking fruit from here.
Rica Terra, Bullets Before Cannonballs wine is dark ink in colour with some opaqueness. Scrummy dark nose of liquorice, plum, cola and black fruits, ending with a hint of smoke and tobacco. Slightly chilled this goes really well with a simple pizza margheritaCountry: Australia
