About The Wine
Here's another out of Bryan Martin's 'Weird Stuff' portfolio.
Pétillant Naturel (Pét-Nat) is a traditional way of making lightly sparkling wines. Essentially, the winemaker will bottle the wine before the ferment is complete and allow it to kick on inside the bottle. The wines are super interesting, constantly evolving in the bottle, progressively becoming more and more wonderful. They are alive...
The Ravensworth Pét-Nat is made from 100% estate grown Riesling. The fruit was pressed as whole bunches straight into two 700L ceramic eggs, the cloudy juice was then bottled and sealed with a crown.
Bryan Martin has made this wine style one of his specialties over the last few years. This release looks better than ever.
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.
