Region: Canberra - Australian Capital Territory
Winemaker: Bryan Martin
Varietal(s): Pinot Gris, Gewüztraminer & Riesling On skins
The Ravensworth Seven Months is one of Bryan Martin's favourite wines to make. Excitingly, this year, the 2019 release is all estate grown fruit from Bryan's own vineyard in Murrumbateman.
The classic three variety blend of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer fermented on skins in ceramic egg for seven months (hence the name), with this extended skin contact adding all sorts of colour, texture and complexity.
This year's might be the best to date, a glorious mouthful of fruit that's slippery, grippy, textural and thought-provoking.
