Ricca Terra 2018 Small Batch Nero d'Avola (Riverland)

Ashley and Holly Ratcliff have been almost single-handedly responsible for reviving the hot South Aussie Riverland region, once a major supplier of bulk fruit to large wine companies. Through the planting of organically farmed, heat tolerant Mediterranean varieties, their quality fruit goes into the wines of many of Australia's young gun winemakers, and also into their own wines, Ricca Terra. The Nero is a deep well of cherries and blackberries, underpinned by dried herbal, graphite and hot tar notes. The palate neatly balances silky, juicy fruit and herbs with savory tannins and lifted acidity. An approachable medium- to full-bodied wine to sip with wintery fare. Christina Pickard
