2022 The Marathon Man

Award Winner

With a change in seasons on the horizon, I'm thrilled to be releasing the 2022 Marathon Man.

The visual appearance is plum juice, deep red in colour. The plum theme continues in the aroma of this wine, along with nutmeg and cherries. Mouthfeel is rich and powerful with chalky tannins and lots of length. Overall, the wine is balanced and super exciting. Value for money, this wine is bang on and perfect for the cooler months ahead. Would match well with lamb chops or a traditional pasta dish.

The Marathon Man was one of the first wines created when we started our crazy winemaking journey.


The Story

Many think the marathon is the truest test of endurance, determination and self-discipline. The reality is, the marathon all about self-belief, 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 that reaching the finish line will bring unprecedented satisfaction. The same physical and mental challenges face those who dream of making great wines.

Ricca Terra Farms’ vigneron, Ashley Ratcliff, has run multiple marathons, including the prestigious New York Marathon. He is also on the quest to make great wines through the blending of French grape varieties.
