About The Wine
Ravensworth 'The Grainery' is a unique wine in the Canberra wine landscape.
Made from a blend of Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne and Chardonnay fruit sourced from both Bryan's vineyard in Murrumbateman, this wine is all about balance in the mouth.
The way Bryan juggles whole bunch ferment, skin contact and time on lees in making this wine is masterful. It fills the palate with all kinds of shapes and flavours and it maintains a lightness and freshness that this style or blend so often lacks.
Another big win for Bryan Martin and a must try for lovers of textural whites.
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.
