2019 Ravensworth Seven Months
The Ravensworth Seven Months is one of Bryan Martin's favourite wines to make. Excitingly, this year, the 2019 release is all estate grown fruit from Bryan's own vineyard in Murrumbateman.
The classic three variety blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer fermented on skins in ceramic egg for seven months (hence the name), with this extended skin contact adding all sorts of colour, texture and complexity.
This year's might be the best to date, a glorious mouthful of fruit that's slippery, grippy, textural and thought-provoking.Read more about 2019 Ravensworth Seven Months
2019 Swinging Bridge #003 Amber
This is Tom Ward's fifth go round on the experimental #003.
He's refining the style every year, the 2019 sees more smashability and a little less wildness. This is not quite as 'out there' as the earlier releases but the intent to create a textural yet vibrant skin contact white wine remains the same.
This is a blend of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, and Reisling. The fruit spent four weeks on skins, all the fruit was co-fermented and then spent three months in old wood prior to bottling. No additions made during the making, the wine bottled totally unfined and unfiltered with just a little sulphur to keep it sturdy.
The Riesling is from a slightly higher altitude vineyard this year and gives the wine a spritely acid backbone which allows the textural sides of the Gewurz and Gris to shine their brightest.Read more about 2019 Swinging Bridge #003 Amber
2019 Vignerons Schmolzer & Brown Grauburgunder
This is the first venture into amber winemaking for Tessa and Jeremy at VS&B.
This is the way Pinot Gris should be treated. The Graüburgunder (German for Pinot Gris) spends a goodly time on skins before being pressed, allowing the natural colour and tannin of the variety to shine.
It's an excellent first crack at the wine style. There's loads of fresh stone fruit and florals to be enjoyed, yet the flavours are fresh and crisp, with clean acidity and plenty of definition.
So many producers are trying their hand at orange winemaking at the moment, this is one of the most successful debut releases we've seen.Read more about 2019 Vignerons Schmolzer & Brown Grauburgunder
