'I should probably call this a pet-NOT, it has a slight PFFT on opening, but after that it is best treated as a highly aromatic, slightly cloudy, pétillant, orange / rosé wine. That trace of CO2 is vital though, as the wine was made without any sulphur dioxide additions whatsoever it’s the carbon dioxide that is protecting it.' - Winemaker, Tim Wildman MW
Everyone in the Swig office loves this! Rhubarb and custard tangy sweets with hints of melon and peach and a tart apple palate. Yum!
'The fruit is from Ricca Terra Farms, Riverland, South Australia. Ashley and Holly Ratcliff at Ricca Terra Farms are farming sustainably and increasingly organically in the Riverland with a high level of care, attention and detail to their viticulture. They’ve planted climate appropriate varieties (mainly from Southern Italy) and sell their fruit to a growing cluster of high quality wine makers across Australia.
Their company motto is Viticulture with Vision and working with them makes me feel part of something bigger, a real movement towards sustainability in Australia’s hottest, driest State.
