Region: Canberra - Australian Capital Territory
Winemaker: Bryan Martin
Varietal(s): 100% Pinot Gris on skins
Bryan Martin is one of a kind. His winemaking approach leans heavily on his keen intuition. He's not afraid to try things, to push boundaries. His wines are out there on the cusp of interesting Australian vino, yet they don't go too far.
This look at Pinot Gris takes the variety in an interesting direction.
By allowing the fruit to spend a good amount of time on skins fermenting in a ceramic egg, Martin has built texture and intrigue into a variety that all too often looks bland. And a dash of Pinot Noir juice cranks the colour and delicious fruit flavours up a notch or two.
It has depth whilst still maintaining incredible freshness. Whether you are after something simple to smash back or a white with some detail you can sit 'n' sniff on, this is going to be right in your wheelhouse.
