Canberra, Hilltops, Gundagai, NSW

Arguably Australia's best value Sangiovese. This strikes the perfect balance of easy-drinking yet serious and savoury. The 2019 is a killer release from Bryan Martin.

About The Wine

This wine from Bryan Martin is firmly ensconced as one of Australia's best value Sangioveses. true to form of the last 5+ years, the 2019 is an absolute ripper!

Bryan's Sangiovese has always had that nice balance between Sangiovese's natural savoury varietal character and sheer drinkability, but the 2019 shows a little lighter on its feet. Its' bursting with fruit, finishing dry and savoury as is the varietal signature.

This is an awesome, authentic Sangiovese from one of Canberra's most exciting producers.

If you're looking for a top quality wine to take along to your little local BYO pizza place, that's just what this was made for!

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. Truly unique wines from a region on the up and up and some of Canberra’s most sort after wines.

TASTING NOTES

There's six different vineyards from Hall, Murrumbateman, Hilltops and Gundagai contributing this year. A beautiful medium bodied wine that carries fragrant dark cherry, floral and spice aromas with a fine textural palate. Our fifteenth vintage and just getting better and better with vine age and us getting the smarts.

VINTAGE NOTES
Just a brilliant year, warm to hot, small crops, perfect really

WINEMAKING NOTES
Processed as whole berries, so no pumps used, a natural ferment that wasn't messed around with too much and then left on-skins for three weeks. matured in small 5 year old French oak cask.

Absolute heaven

Great wine to start with and we didn't change to anything else.

Went great with the rice and meat dish we had for dinner.

2019 Regional Sangiovese

Quite a nice wine here. It was a little shy on opening and I preferred it on day 2 after it had opened up so be sure to decant. Light-medium bodied, very tasty, and lovely aromatics like other Ravensworth reds.

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
