Ricca Terra Juicy June 2021
Juicy as the name suggests, this is bright fruited with ripe raspberry aromatics and a little spice. Despite its origins in the heat of the Riverlands in South Australia, this remains supple and light. It’s a blend of Negroamaro and Grenache and is just asking to be chilled down and quaffed in the sun.
Headed up by Ashley and Holly Ratcliff, Ricca Terra comprises 10 vineyards and 70 hectares of vines in Riverland, South Australia. Their focus is on sustainable winegrowing in every aspect of their venture. To mitigate the region’s heat and the necessity for irrigation, mediterranean, drought tolerant grape varieties are the stars - Vermentino, Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano, Nergoamaro and Grenache.
