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 superior structure, there's even greater character and elocution of terroir and fruit. Never been a better Bondar.. Model mclaren macerations»

Thistledown Gorgeous Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia
A pure Grenache wine, crafted from the fruit of some wonderful old sites, hand made in the traditional small batch way. This is Thistledown Grenache No1. Grapes are picked off a number of blocks in the Riverland and McLaren Vale, venerable old vineyards and choice parcels of dry grown bush vine fruit. All are separately vinified in small batches through the action of wild ferments. Whole bunch inclusions and larger format oak achieve a beautifully layered, textural palate, lead by its strawberry and wild spice perfumes, hedonistically bottled unfiltered and unfined.
