Ravensworth Regional Sangiovese 2018
SPECIAL 6 PACK BUY
‘Someone asked me the other day something to the tune of ‘who are the next generation of newer generation producers who will truly create a legacy in Australian wine … I would put Ravensworth and Bryan Martin firmly in the list. No misses from him. Building a formidable argument to prestige.‘ Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
‘As a talented food writer, cook and forager, Bryan Martin thinks deeply about textures and flavours. This combined with over a decade’s experience at Clonakilla, has resulted in a suite of distinctive Ravensworth wines’ Huon Hooke, Gourmet Traveller Wine.
Bryan Martin has been assistant winemaker and ‘right hand man’ to Tim Kirk at Clonakilla. However Ravensworth has been he and wife Jocelyn’s passion since 2001 .. .all fruit sourced from their cool climate, high country vineyard near Murrambateman in the Canberra wine district. Clonakilla has often been thought as the leading winery in this region but Ravensworth has gained much success and critical praise including winning the International Riesling Challenge in 2012 and in 2015 he was runner up Winemaker of the Year for Gourmet Traveller Wine.
“Bryan’s becoming a bit of a poster boy in his own right now, … And quite right, too. I don’t think we can go wrong really. Bryan’s been an extraordinarily great blessing to our business.” Tim Kirk, Clonakilla.
Bryan Martin said of this new release .. “There’s six different vineyards from Hall, Murrumbateman, Hilltops and Gundagai contributing this year. A beautiful medium bodied wine that carries fragrant dark cherry, floral and spice aromas with a fine textural palate. Our fifteenth vintage and just getting better and better with vine age and us getting the smarts. With food … Anything with tomatoes in it will work a treat. Sangiovese goes head to head with high acid food like…. So pizza and pasta along with more complex braised veal and game dishes will defs go well with here.” Mighty delicious, juicy local sangiovese here & fine grained tannins .. yes it’s namesake Jupiter, the roman god of the heavens will be jumping for joy with this libation!
