The Varieties: Italian Red Blend (Refosco, Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano and Lagrein)
The Story: The name says it all! This is the First and Final (F&F) release of this wine. Why? F&F is a concept wine. It forces Ricca Terra Vintners to test the traditional boundaries of grape growing and winemaking, allowing the discovery of new and exciting wine styles and stories. The key discipline is, once boundaries have been pushed they cannot be pushed again, meaning the concept behind each vintage of the F&F wine can never be repeated.
The 2017 F&F WINE: Is a blend of grape varieties, wine regions and families. The wine reflects the efforts of the pioneering viticulturists of the Chalmers and Ratcliff families, who have both been at the forefront of growing Mediterranean grape varieties in Sunraysia (Victoria) and Riverland (South Australia).
The Refosco used in this wine was grown at the Chalmers’ Merbein property in Victoria, while the Nero d’Avola, Montepulciano and Lagrein was grown by the Ratcliff family in Loveday, South Australia.
All four grape varieties were harvested and co-fermented together.
Both Families are recipients of the prestigious Gourmet Traveller of Viticulturist of the Year.
