At Bondar our vision is to make wines that are bright and pure, finely structured, mid-weight yet concentrated in flavour, with a savoury element.
For us our “place” dictates the style, with our hands-off winemaking approach allowing the grapes to be heard with minimal winemaking artefact.
We do a lot of work in the vineyard to help achieve the house style, and in the winemaking process we use minimal inputs, wild fermentation, techniques such as whole bunches, extended time on skins, and picking the fruit earlier, to achieve the balanced, bright wines for which we aim.
