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.

Bress Le Grand Coq Noir Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Following a visit to France where he studied the ancient pastoral practices of breeding the world's best chickens, Adam Marks gained the inspiration to create great Australian wines in the very same manner, adopting an artisanal approach to production, employing traditional, age old methods. Coq Noir is the flagship Shiraz by one of Victoria's most adroit, small batch producers. An opulent effort vinified from parcels of the most intense fruit, bottled without fining or filtration, which may deposit a harmless sediment, decanting is a must.

Shiraz is picked from two blocks of a distinguished old Heathcote vineyard. Gently crushed fruit and a parcel of whole bunches are treated to a wild, indigenous yeast vinification in traditional open fermenters. A course of hand plunges and pumpovers extract deep colour and optimal tannins, followed by transfer to a luxuriously high proportion of new Francois Freres French oak hogsheads. Upon completion of malolactic, the wine is gravity fed to barrel for a year's maturation and minimal filtration.
Intense, vibrant inky crimson. A complex array of black fruit aromas, spices and cloves, plums, oak and char vanillan spice. The palate is tightly packed full of black fruit, oak is beautifully integrated, providing structure and adding power, balance and savoury richness. The best of Bendigo should always be decanted and served alongside the freshest, local farm ingredients.
