Bondar is a little family wine company making wines from McLaren vale and Adelaide Hills. Bondar make wines that are lighter, brighter, more savoury, structured and intriguing. Different.
Hand-picked fruit from 65+ year old vines planted on our Rayner Vineyard in McLaren Vale. This wine pays homage to the Bondar style with fragrance and a lightness of touch. We used whole bunches and extended time on skins, which helps to create that lightness, and adds dimensions of flavour and a silky mouth feel. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and minimal additions, aged in older French oak, Violet Hour should improve nicely over the next five years or so and will suit lighter meat dishes and pasta beautifully.
A blend of vinification approaches for specific blocks and parcels, all from the estate. Scented with dark spices and dark fruits, fruits that drive the palate, initially dense, then lifting on the finish illuminating what's gone before.
