A welcome return after a stint on the sidelines. We were lucky with the amount of fruit that arrived this year - we take the entirety of Ricca Terra's tiny plantings of this variety - one of the very few active vineyards of Greco in Australia. Named Terra Cotta for the colour of the dirt that it's grown in, but now we've experimented with fermentation in our Amphora that we've knocked the dust off.

Phenolics and acidity are Greco's two claims to fame, and when made with extended skin contact, can take a variety that's primarily used for blending in Campagnia and transform it into a compelling and complex wine. Fermented on skins for 21 days, the tannin profile here is sublime - a firm, silty frame for the wine. Flavour wise it's all mango, papaya, blood orange - a litany of tropical fruits. Banging stuff.

Potentially the wine of the 2023 vintage.
