About The Wine
Sadly, thanks to the brutal bushfires across NSW in 2020, there will be no regular releases under the Ravensworth label from the 2020 vintage.
The Long Way Round wines are what sits in their place, with fruit coming from the other side of the country, and travelling over 5000km to be made by Bryan Martin.
The Tinto is a fantastic red wine born from old dry-grown Grenache in the Swan Valley.
With the dryness of the Swan, Bryan took inspiration from more savoury expressions of the variety found in Spain for this wine. It's firm, dry and spicy with a sweet core of cherry/raspberry fruit. A splash of Pinot Noir and even a little Chenin Blanc spice thinggs up a little more.
It's an excellent wine that will likely never be made again.
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.
