What can’t Brian Martin from Ravensworth do? Brian has been making the wines at the famed Clonakilla for years. Tim Kirk (Head Winemaker of Clonakilla) may have the fame, but Brian is the one pulling it off in the cellar. Brian started his own brand a few years back and we’ve seen nothing but exception quality and interest in his wines. The Grainery is a field blend predominantly composed of Northern Rhone varieties like Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier (with a splash of Chardonnay). It’s rich, honey-suckle, ginger and spice profile is complex and long. - Chris L

Winery Note:

Our vineyard is situated in the bosom of the Murrumbateman wine country, just a half hour north of this fine nation’s capital, Canberra, or Kanbra as we call it. Whilst technically not the centre of the universe, we think it’s a pretty neat place to grow grapes, hang out and freeze our butts off each year.

This vineyard is planted with a mixture of varieties based on fairly precise scientific, meteorological and market information of the day. Either that or we are making it up as we go. Shiraz is the main crop and we have four different clones planted at the moment: Best’s selection old vine, the generic but awesome 1127, R6WV…um..28? from Tahbilk and a new one, ENTAV 470 from France apparently. If you want to study shiraz clones, look to the AWRI website, there’s a shit load of information there.

Then we have a fair bit of Riesling planted, they are all Geisenheim clones - 110, 198,239. Sangiovese would be the next most planted variety, three clones MAT6, MAT 7, VCR23. And finally we have a mixture of whites that invariably go into the Grainery or Seven Months blends: Marsanne, roussanne, viognier, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc.

The 2.6ha vineyard is managed loosely under organic principles, no herbicides or salt based fertilisers, fungicides recommended by organic growers. So Bryan spends most his days mulching, brushcutting and certainly not watching Netflix
