About This Wine
Not something we see everyday, Rose aged under flor from the hands of Canberra maestro Brian Martin.
The complexity derived from flor ageing is quite a singular character, that provides such unique flavours to wine. Nebbiolo and Barbera combine here and aged around a year under the ‘veil’, with results that are distinct and delicious. Heady and powerful, there is a nutty, floral and biscuitesque flavour profile here, yet the palate still retains freshness, and is full of fruit.
These are the kind of wines that we need to champion in Australia, winemakers who step beyond the boundaries of convention, and bring us wines that are unique and delicious - boundary-benders so to speak.
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. These are unique wines from a region on the up and up and now some of Canberra’s most sought-after wines.
