The Story
Many think the marathon is the truest test of endurance, determination and selfdiscipline. The reality is, the marathon is all about self-belief and the knowledge you can do better and making dreams come true! Over 42.195Km the human body sweats, strains and screams to the mind to stop! But the mind knows better, that being, the finish line will bring unprecedented satisfaction. The same physical and mental challenges face those who dream of making great wines. Ricca Terra Farm’s vigneron, Ashley Ratcliff, has run multiply marathons, including the prestigious New York Marathon. He is also on the quest to make great wines through the blending of French grape varieties.

The strategy behind the blend
The use of superior clones of French grape varieties (which have taken over 10 years to be imported into Australia) have been planted at Ricca Terra Farms to craft this wine. EntavInra and other quality clones have provided a significant quality difference to this wine that reflects the belief, knowledge and a reality that great wines can be made if you are willing to partake in the marathon of life. Alc/Vol: 14.8%
