This year’s Riverland Wine Show awards were extremely rewarding for Ricca Terra Vintners. When Ash Ratcliff said, “Arinto most definitely has the ‘wow’ factor. It makes fresh, flavoursome and complex wine. It really is a grape variety that will start turning heads!” has proved to be right.
Ricca Terra were the recipients of the following awards at the 2018 Riverland Wine Show:
Best White Wine Trophy & Gold Medal
2018 Ricca Terra Arinto
Best Dry Table White Wine Trophy & Gold Medal
2018 Ricca Terra Grenache Blanc
Best Alternative Grape Variety Trophy

Best Red Wine Trophy 2017 Ricca Terra Bullets Before Cannonballs
Best Dry Red (Silver) 2018 Ricca Terra Nero d’Avola
Best Rosé (Silver)
2018 Ricca Terra Colour of Calmness
Bullets Before Cannonballs is now a five time trophy winning red, having taken out a win at the 2018 Winewise Championships and two trophies at the 2017 Australian Grape Variety Wine Show.
“The art of wine really comes to the fore in blending, and here’s as good an example as you’ll find. It’s a juicy, spicy, savoury, red berry delight. Enjoy it now”.
(Lester Jesberg – WINEWISE)
