Description

Bryan Martin is one of a kind. His winemaking approach leans heavily on his keen intuition. He's not afraid to try things, to push boundaries. His wines are out there on the cusp of interesting Australian vino, yet they don't go too far.

This look at Pinot Gris takes the variety in an interesting direction.

By allowing the fruit to spend a good amount of time on skins fermenting in a bunch of different vessels (oak, ceramic and concrete!), Martin has built texture and intrigue into a variety that all too often looks bland.

It has depth whilst still maintaining incredible freshness. Whether you are after something simple to smash back or a white with some detail you can sit 'n' sniff on, this is going to be right in your wheelhouse.

"Think of it as a textural rose, super fragrant the perfect wine for chicken in its many disguises..."
- Bryan Martin

Our ramato style gris. Held on skins for 3 - 4 weeks, made without any adjustments, just the fruit, its microbiom and a littler time.

    Pinot gris

    Too much colour extraction in my view.

    More of an orange wine than a very good looking pinot gris.

    Yummo 😋

    This is a great summer, actually, anytime wine. A really good skin contact wine that sings with colour and flavour.

    This is Mrs Browns favorite wine by a long stretch so it was an easy buy.

    The tint makes it seem like your waiting for a Rose taste and finish but no, dry and plenty of flavors which are well balanced. I think I might also add it to the top of my list.

    Characterful, textural Pinot Gris

    In a world awash with bland Pinot Gris/Grigio, you can rely on Ravensworth to delivery character. The skin contact gives plenty of colour and tannin, but not at the expense of freshness. Very drinkable!

Ravensworth

Bryan Martin is one of the most creative and inquisitive winemakers we've ever met. After leaving his position as winemaker alongside Tim Kirk at Canberra regional flagbearer, Clonakilla, Bryan went full steam in on his own label Ravensworth, which has firmly hit cult status amongst collectors.

He and his wife Jocelyn have a beautiful property outside of Murrumbateman which is home to all of their excellent Estate wines and Bryan also searches surrounding vineyards and out to the Hilltops region to compile his excellent value Regional series of wines. Sustainability and an unwavering commitment to quality across the board underpin the entire operation at Ravensworth. Perhaps best known for his benchmark Shiraz Viognier and textural Rieslings, Bryan is also arguably the country's best producer of Sangiovese and is a true master of the dark art of skin-contact whites.

Bryan embodies everything we love about small artisanal Australian producers. He is humble, irreverent, committed to the pursuit of excellence and always looking to explore. Quite simply, if you see a Ravensworth wine anywhere, you should buy it.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
