Ricca Terra 2020 Nero d'Avola (Riverland)

There's a highly appealing lift of ultrajuicy strawberry and cherry fruit akin to Jolly Ranchers straight off the bat on this wine from progressive organic Riverland growers. A stalky, spicy and slightly floral edge adds interest. The palate is medium in weight with savory tannins and a mighty lift of unexpected (for the warmth of the region) acidity. Fruit sits a little flatly, though, and falls off quickly, showing a touch of alcohol heat. Not as strong as the 2019, but a tasty and characterful drop nonetheless. Christina Pickard
