2017 Bondar Rayner Vineyard Grenache

from 38.00

Sourced from our tiny 0.7ha block of 44-year old Grenache vines, planted in sand on our Rayner Vineyard in McLaren Vale. The lowest-yielding vines were hand-picked, and natural fermentation took place - some in a ceramic egg on skins for 120 days, some with whole bunches and some with whole berries. All done to add layers of complexity to the wine, and to build structure around the beautifully aromatic and pure Grenache fruit. 206 dozen bottles made.

$38.00 in any six (including mixed-six packs)

$41.80 per bottle

Shipping is a flat rate fee of $5 to addresses in metro Adelaide and $15 elsewhere in Australia per order.

93 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"Marquee McLaren Vale vineyard now in the hands of some really good people, really good winemakers. It’s a very exciting proposition. The resulting wines, so far, short as the tenure has been, have been great. Grenache on song. Whole bunch component, some long maceration for one component in a ceramic egg. Dig in. One for collectors in the know, if you get my gist. 

Sappy, flirty, cherry-jammy grenache with some good finesse and a svelte, silky feel. Pretty in perfume, succulent and satiny in texture, the wine offers good, sweet fruit flavour and bright and refreshing acidity. It’s a cool, restrained feel to this grenache. Elegant vibe. It’s good stuff here. Real good."
