So bloody good to drink.
About The Wine
Bryan Martin is one of a kind. His winemaking approach leans heavily on his keen intuition. He's not afraid to try things, to push boundaries. His wines are out there on the cusp of interesting Australian vino, yet they don't go too far.
This look at Pinot Gris takes the variety in an interesting direction.
By allowing the fruit to spend a good amount of time on skins fermenting in a ceramic egg, Martin has built texture and intrigue into a variety that all too often looks bland. A dash of Pinot Noir juice in the 2018 release cranks the colour and delicious fruit flavours up a notch or two.
It has depth whilst still maintaining incredible freshness. Whether you are after something simple to smash back or a white with some detail you can sit 'n' sniff on, this is going to be right in your wheelhouse.
Bryan Martin is a winemaker at the height of his powers. Setting aside the exceptional work he is doing behind the scenes at regional flagbearer, Clonakilla, his Ravensworth wines have become some of the Canberra region’s hottest releases.
Bryan’s winemaking style is equal parts science and artistic flair. He’s an adventurous spirit trapped in the body of a technical virtuoso. A concert pianist jamming to free jazz. It’s a killer combination.
His range is full of alternative varieties and whacky blends, with texture and balance the key in everything. Truly unique wines from a region on the up and up and some of Canberra’s most sort after wines.
