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 bunch of different vessels (oak, ceramic and concrete!), Martin has built texture and intrigue into a variety that all too often looks bland.

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.

About Ravensworth

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Each batch was macerated and fermented on-skins for 3-4 weeks in oak, concrete and ceramic. pressed, settled and bottled. Pretty simple really.

A little more hands off this year, more skins involved and less fussing around prior to packaging. Spicy, pink grapefruit, a hint of cranberry and strawberry even. More texture from the skin contact yet still delicate and reserved.

Blend : Pinot Gris (100%)

Yummo 😋

This is a great summer, actually, anytime wine. A really good skin contact wine that sings with colour and flavour.

This is Mrs Browns favorite wine by a long stretch so it was an easy buy.

The tint makes it seem like your waiting for a Rose taste and finish but no, dry and plenty of flavors which are well balanced. I think I might also add it to the top of my list.

Characterful, textural Pinot Gris

In a world awash with bland Pinot Gris/Grigio, you can rely on Ravensworth to delivery character. The skin contact gives plenty of colour and tannin, but not at the expense of freshness. Very drinkable!

Thanks Natalia! Couldn't agree more! Love this wine, such a surprise packet and so interesting but also just delicious to drink. Such a great winemaker is Bryan Martin. His 'Seven Months' orange wine is released soon too, should be amazing. Cheers :)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
