An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the harvest timed to perfection, a precision picking of fruit at just the right hour of day, aimed at capturing and bottling the exquisite expression of place. Bondar's graceful Grenache releases are brimming with bright tri-colour fruits, delicately laced by genteel acidity. Alongside the profound freshness and.. Model mclaren macerations»
There are fewer than twenty hectares of Stefano Lubiana vines, overlooking the spectacular tidal estuary of Derwent River. Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A peerless expression of vintage, an orphic approach to the winemaker's art, a humbling eloquence of our southernmost.. Celestial wines from southern climes»

Argiano Suolo IGT Sangiovese CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sangiovese Montalcino Italy
Suolo means soil, the rich confluence of Tuscan terroirs which host Argiano's oldest vines. Sangiovese is sourced off two elite vineyard blocks, cropped to a mere four or five bunches per vine, intensifying the flavours in the grapes and achieving extraordinary concentration. Just 3,000 bottles and sixty magnums of Suolo are made annually from the limited yields of these precious sites.
Available in cartons of six

Grapes are selectively harvested by hand in mid October and brought to the winery in small crates to avoid any damage to berries. The large proportion of whole fruit initiates carbonic maceration as grapes begin to ferment from the inside out. The must is left in contact with skins for three weeks gaining maximum extractions before being run off to 225 litre barrels. The wines complete malolactic in a selection of completely new French oak barrels of the finest grain, coopered to facilitate softness of tannin and fruit. Components are racked once over a period of fifteen to seventeen months. Suolo is usually bottled in July with no filtration and may throw a harmless sediment which is the sign of natural, quality wine.
Dark ruby colour. Nose of complex dark fruits, a beautifully delineated, perfumed red berry character, flowers and spice, licorice, smoke and earthiness in a gorgeously pure, vibrant expression of Sangiovese that bursts onto the palate. Beautifully textured, Suolo is silky and smoothly textured, a wine of exquisite balance, dark and mysterious with superbly integrated oak.
