When talking about Bryan Martin, it is the done thing to mention the iconic wines he makes at Clonakilla, but his own Ravensworth label has well and truly arrived at the top table. Made by
the same skilled hands and lauded by the critics, Ravensworth wines are pure, individual and downright drinkable.
They are classics in the making from a gorgeous textural, salmon pink Pinot Gris – a firm staff favourite – to a pitch perfect Riesling that’s fast becoming one of the most anticipated releases of
And for something really special (as if they weren’t special enough), The Grainery ticks all the boxes. A blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier (with a little touch of Gewürztraminer), it’s rich and ripe and gorgeously decadent. James Halliday says ‘there’s an extraordinary amount of flavour and texture”, Mike Bennie describes it as “Cool, complex and fascinating”, while Huon Hooke calls
it a “superb wine that doesn’t fit any neat pigeonholes”. We say “what are you waiting for?”

Citrus aromas with hints of florals and fennel spice continue onto the palate where they combine with crunchy green apple and a lick of sweetness. Framed by lively acidity this is a wine of impeccable structure, character and length.
Item Code: ITM6053
A fragrant nose of pear, lemon blossom and a hint of strawberry. The palate is rich yet medium-bodied with a touch of spice amongst the pear-apricot flavours, supported by mouth-watering natural acidity. A well-balance and delicious wine.
Item Code: ITM6054
“Rich scents but not overblown, sniffs of honey, ripe pear, toasted almonds, nougat. Decadent, but has a fresh floral lift too. Soft and slippery in texture, set on curves of stone fruit, nashi pear, slightly bitter in the nicest way, great length of flavour, vitality and so much personality. Cool, complex and fascinating wine. It’s alt-styling is a great asset.” Mike Bennie.
