Produced by Peter Munro, Ric Red 2021 is an easy-to-love plushy red wine blend of perhaps Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre (it's a secret recipe) and is dry, fruity, full-bodied and perfumed with crushed raspberry, blueberry, wild strawberry, cherry, earthy and spicy flavours rich and satisfying on the palate. The wine is a collaboration between St Hugo winery in the Barossa Valley and Daniel Ricciardo, an Italian-Australian driver who races for Red Bull. The full-bodied, turbo-charged Ric Red is a collaboration between the Barossa Valley's St. Hugo winery and Daniel Ricciardo is competing in this year's Montreal Grand Prix. Enjoy it now through 2026.

Food pairings: Coq au vin, wild mushroom risotto, gourmet burgers from the grill.
