Region: Canberra - Australian Capital Territory
Winemaker: Bryan Martin
Varietal(s): 100% Gamay
Bryan Martin continues to eke out some of the most interesting wines that NSW has to offer.
This is his fourth crack at the Ravensworth Gamay Noir. Surprise, surprise, it is a belter. When a Tumbarumba grower called him up in 2015 with some fruit on offer, Martin jumped at the chance. And since the epic success of the first release, a wine that James Halliday said, "No gamay has previously been made equal to this in Australia", Martin has only refined his stylings further with this much-loved variety.
This falls under the Ravensworth heading of 'weird stuff'. It's definitely left of center but boy is it dangerously glugable.
