It’s a pitch perfect example of ‘barbera’.
About The Wine
Bryan Martin's Hilltops Barbera is a picture perfect example of an Aussie take on this Italian stalwart variety..
The Italian variety finds a happy groove amongst the Ravensworth range. The easy approachability as a fresh young wine, the lack of need for additions, the balance of fruit and savoury characters that Italian varieties offer all suits Bryan's winemaking down to a tee.
Perfectly ripe, delicious red fruit and a lovely lick of chewy tannin make this one of the most versatile wines we've seen in a while. Anytime, anywhere. If you're looking for something to take to your next dinner party, this would be a great choice.
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.
