2021 Bondar Violet Hour Shiraz - McLaren Vale, SARegular price $33.00
From the Raynar Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, Andre has nailed it again. This is McLaren Vale Shiraz in a glass. Luxurious and velvety with a nice body, then layers of different fruit...macerated raspberries on the nose, accompanied by white pepper and charcuterie (think Bresaola). this is truly liquid goodness, palate is smooth as silk with flavours of raspberries, plums and rhubarb...very silky finish
If you want a wine that will just light up every pleasure centre then this is the one. If you want a wine you need to think about and consider every drop, this is the one (win, win).
"I like that these Bondar reds only use older oak.
Dried flower and herb perfume, blackberry and boysenberry, an iodine/oyster shell thing happening, plus brown spices. It’s medium to full-bodied, dark fruit and savoury flavours, spice and beef jerky, with dense silty tannin, and a gently toasty finish of fine length. Good stuff. Beautifully made."
