Our premier white variety. Bone-dry, textural and super fragrant. A bit of an old school way of making it, using concrete and leaving the ferments to their own devises. 

Always full of citrusy aromas filled with white flowers and spice.

Ravensworth 2023 Regional Riesling "Fruit sourced from the Canberra District including estate-grown and the Hilltops region. Then, as is the Bryan Martin way, there’s some skin contact to bolster texture and fine phenolics before it all settles in vessels of concrete, ceramic and seasoned foudre. This is something else and delicious. Heady aromatics wafts of lemon blossom, ginger flower and spices, yet the palate steals the show. Textural, waxy, stony and complex with a silk-line of acidity all the way through. A cracking drink on its own or with food" 96 Points

Ravensworth 2022 Regional Riesling
"Stunning riesling, one with an alpine blast of citrusy, briny acidity, green apple freshness and gentle, nutty savouriness. Complex, beautiful, somewhat gentle, let’s say cleverly subtle, but with so much succulence and immediate charm. It feels world class from first sip, side-stepping rank and file versions that typify expectations of riesling in Australia, deeply character-filled and ultimately, delicious. Think Keller, Clemensbusch and Lauer. Or the best examples of La Violetta, Crawford River and Frankland Estate, perhaps. Anyway, it is individual, textural, glorious in its mix of fruit, savoury, spice, vitality, minerality" 96 Points
