Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier - Canberra District
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
‘Someone asked me the other day something to the tune of ‘who are the next generation of newer generation producers who will truly create a legacy in Australian wine … I would put Ravensworth and Bryan Martin firmly in the list. No misses from him. Building a formidable argument to prestige.’ - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
This is a truly exciting wine! Drop dead gorgeous to sniff on and drink and extremely limited. The quintessence of medium weight high quality cool climate shiraz in Australia. Just a beautiful beautiful wine…
Made by Canberra winemaking guru Bryan Martin who also makes the wines at Clonakilla, Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier has appropriately gained the nickname of ‘Baby Clonakilla, although happily it is more affordable.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
