About The Product
If you love your reds bright, fresh and gluggable then you'll adore this. The 2017 Ravensworth Tinto is a blend of Grenache, Tempranillo, Graciano, all the varieties baring their Spanish names hilariously on the label.
From what Martin describes as an "Awesome year in Hilltops" in 2017, the fruit was picked with acidity at front of mind, wild-fermented as whole berries, left on skins for 2 weeks and then pressed into 5-year-old, neutral barriques. The wine is about freshness and balance, easy drinking with some structure and interest and Martin nails the brief.
It's a joyous red wine and another massive win for Bryan Martin and Ravensworth.
Canberra. A mountain of potential. A sleeping giant of Australian wine. The ability of this region to produce world class wines in only a relatively short history is almost second to none in the whole country. We have some absolute geniuses to thank for developing this region. People have taken notice. Canberra wine is some serious gear. With the ability to produce everything from perfumed and tightly wound Syrah, to razor sharp Riesling and a bunch of emerging varieties in the ground excelling, Canberra will be one of the ‘must watch’ wine producing regions in Australia for many years to come.
