Our Rhone white blend based on Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. Each year its slightly different based on what grows on our block. More Roussanne for the first time so the wine carries enhanced citrus notes and tingling acidity.

We think these varieties work very well together and this wine will cellar for a very long time.

Ravensworth 2021 The Grainery
"That puckering texture! It’s a delight. Honey nut cornflakes, green apple, lime, halva, green herbs and pink grapefruit tang through it. That chew is delicious. The wine is fragrant, lots going on, it’s a treat to drink and feels destined for dinner tables, coming alive with food. Drinkability is through the roof and quiet complexity in tow"

"It has all the texture and detail marsanne, viognier and roussanne bring via winemaking, yet a finer rendition this vintage. A lovely balance of stone fruit, quince, Japanese pickled ginger and a raft of warm spices. Slippery, light phenolics, a millefeuille of creamy lees and a savoury overlay make this a tip-top tipple. It shines more with food" 95 points Jane Faulkner, The Wine Companion
