ravensworth shiraz viognier 07 is a label to watch

Ravensworth Shiraz Viognier 2007 was featured in an article about the Canberra Wine District in the June Sydney Magazine for the SMH.   Wine writer Peter Bourne said “Up and coming name to look out for …Clonakilla assistant winemaker, Bryan Martin … partner and winemaker at nearby Ravensowrth Wines at Murrumbateman.”

Of the wine he wrote: “This is a superb example of this fashionable blend.   Raspberry and dark-cherry aromas fill the nose with a background of sweet spices – star anise and cloves.  The palate is fine and friendly with lots of soft red-berry fruits and gentle tannins paving the way to a clean, bright finish.  A label to watch with interest.”
