Ricca Terra ‘Bullets Before Cannonballs’ Lagrein, Nero D’Avola, Montepulciano, Tempranillo 2018
The red grapes used to make this wine are some of the standout Mediterranean varieties found planted in Australia. Ashley’s aim was to craft a wine that ‘shouted a statement’ to the world that blends of Mediterranean grape varieties grown in the Riverland would make great wines.
The bullets have been shot…now for the cannonball!
This is a very fragrant, medium-bodied red of high drinkability and charisma, it has crunchy red-black berry fruit characters and a light sweetness, but coupled with ultra spicy notes and a squeaky, tangy, herb-laced finish. It’s bright, flavoursome and easy to drink – good fun, but with a serious undertow in the complexity stakes.
