About The Wine
The 'Tinderry' is a project a long time in the making for Bryan Martin.
After planting Cabernet Franc on his home vineyard over 10 years ago, this is only the second release of this funky and delicious little red. This is Cabernet Franc at its most fragrant and beguiling.
The addition of 25% (!) Sauvignon Blanc was made to further enhance freshness and ease up the sheer intensity of the fruit Bryan picked in 2017. It's an altogether fantastic expression of the two closely linked varieties.
There was only a small amount of this wine made as is the case with all of Bryan's 'experimental' range. Grab one and enjoy.
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.
