2018 Ravensworth Sangiovese
This wine from Bryan Martin has firmly ensconced itself as one of Australia's best value Sangioveses, the 2018 is an absolute ripper!
Bryan's Sangiovese has always had that nice balance between Sangiovese's natural savoury varietal character and sheer drinkability, but the 2018 shows a little lighter on its feet.
Awesome, authentic Sangiovese from one of Canberra's most exciting producers.
If you're looking for a top quality wine to take along to your little local BYO pizza place, that's just what this was made for!Read more about 2018 Ravensworth Sangiovese
2018 Ravensworth Tinto
If you love your reds bright, fresh and gluggable then you'll adore this. The Ravensworth Tinto is a blend of Grenache, Tempranillo, Graciano, all the varieties baring their Spanish names hilariously on the label.
The fruit was picked with acidity at front of mind, wild-fermented as whole berries, left on skins for 2 weeks and then pressed into 5-year-old, neutral barriques. The wine is about freshness and balance, easy drinking with some structure and interest and Martin nails the brief. It's a great example of a Grenache blend outside of South Australia.
It's a joyous red wine and another massive win for Bryan Martin and Ravensworth.Read more about 2018 Ravensworth Tinto
2017 Ravensworth Estate Sangiovese
Bryan Martin's Estate vineyard in Murrumbateman has Sangiovese vines on it that go back 20 years. He has been refining his approach to this wine for many years now and has seemed to find a more traditional method of production as the best course of action.
This is his home-grown fruit sent to huge 2800L foudre for 22 months ageing. As Bryan explains, "A timeless method for this variety that allows it to progress slowly without gathering layers of oak."
The proof is in the pudding and it is clear that this is one of the more impressive Sangioveses in the country. Firm and gravelly with beautiful Autumnal aromatics, this is Sangiovese with a refined Australian accent.Read more about 2017 Ravensworth Estate Sangiovese
2018 Ravensworth The Tinderry
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 Sauvignon Blanc was made to further enhance freshness and ease up the sheer intensity of the fruit Bryan picked in 2018. 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.Read more about 2018 Ravensworth The Tinderry
2017 Ravensworth Nebbiolo
Bryan Martin's winemaking is as refined as it is original, and this Nebbiolo is a wonderful example of what his colourful drops are all about.
Only the fourth ever release of the wine, this comes from the near-perfect 2017 vintage in the Hilltops region, and it looks fantastic. Bryan has uses his large format Stockinger barrels for maturation, the bigger wood making a big difference in the final product. A sort of old-world meets new-world take on this iconic Italian variety.
It will be long-lived in the cellar and matches beautifully with a wide range of foods, but it's equally enjoyable to knock back now. If you're a Nebbiolo admirer then you'll love this, and if you're new to the variety then this is a quality place to start.Read more about 2017 Ravensworth Nebbiolo
