About

If you love your reds bright, fresh and gluggable then you'll adore this. The 2016 Ravensworth Tinto is a blend of Grenache, Tempranillo, Mataro and Cinsault, all the varieties baring their Spanish names hilariously on the label. From what Martin describes as an "awesome year of perfect conditions" in 2016, the fruit was picked with acid at front of mind, wild-fermented as whole berries, left on skins for 2 weeks and then pressed into 5-year-old, neutral barriques. The wine is about freshness and balance, easy drinking with some structure and interest and Martin nails the brief. In his glowing 93 point review, Mike Bennie really hit it on the head: "So easy to drink, finely structured, pitch perfect wine for versatility of drinking occasions." It's a joyous red wine and another massive win for Bryan Martin and Ravensworth.

What it Tastes Like

"Blood plums, blood sausage, cinnamon and clove spice, red cherries pickled and fresh – wafty, lush perfume. Vibrant bouquet. Soft and gently sweet-sour to taste. Crunchy textured, the wine runs Doppler effect through the palate with peppery spice, crisp red cherry and pomegranate flavours, raised on brisk acidity. So easy to drink, finely structured, pitch perfect wine for versatility of drinking occasions." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
