Ravensworth Long Way Around Bianco 2020

WHEN BUSHFIRES DESTROYED RAVENSWORTH'S 2020 VINTAGE, THEY SOUGHT A LITTLE HELP FROM FRIENDS... TREBBIANO-DOMINANT WHITE WINE.  

"From over 5000km they came - across both the Nullabor and Bass Strait - five trucks, one train and a boat carrying eight varieties, from five regions to finally reach home, Murrumbateman. You might say the long way around. We knew early our fruit was toast from bushfires. Many friends from far away offered us fruit and processing space so we scratched together an eclectic mix of esoterica. We found ourselves with options from Swan valley, Margaret and Frankland rivers and the deep south vineyards of Porongurup.

This is a multi-region blend based on the fruit from this wonderful old vineyard in the Swan valley near Perth. Dry grown, bush vines, quite hot area very reminiscent of Spain and Portugal. Our Long Way Around Bianco is mostly Trebbiano, one of Italy’s most versatile and widely planted varieties that goes by many synonyms right across Europe. A short time on skins and then barrel fermented. This was blended with Gewurztraminer from Frankland and Riesling from Porongurup, respectively adding exotic aromas and acidity.

 A rich robust wine with exotic flavours and textures." - Ravensworth
