This wine brings together traditional friends Grenache (80%), Shiraz (15%) and Mataro (5%). Picked by hand, the fruit was gently handled in the winery and aged in old French oak. The Grenache comes from our 43-year old vines, the Shiraz from our 65+ year old vines, and the Mataro from a nearby site. The wine is bright and lifted with the pretty aromatics of Grenache to the fore - red fruits and raspberries with fresh herbal notes. Complexity comes through with spice and gaminess from the Mataro, the Shiraz bringing structure and plush fruit to the palate. The savoury element kicks in late and lingers, alongside the very fine tannins coating the mouth.  420 dozen made.

"Another fantastic release from Bondar. Just the right mix of structure, flavour and interest. This is a savoury, sinewy wine first and foremost though flavours of graphite, woodsmoke, black cherry and fennel mean that there’s plenty else going on. Those strains of spicy tannin though; those fistfuls of smoked twigs and spices; they really set the scene. It twirls and twists through the mouth like it’s mapping out genes. A light-but-exquisite red wine." - 93 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
