Quick Overview

Sheesh, this has something going on. I like the scent, floral, gently sweet, something candied, a lolly bag just opened, but the breeze of fern and briar whips that away and you get a wholly more complex perfume. Drinking is a charm. So satiny, just on medium weight, the sleek slide of nice pinot noir with the jolly sweet fruit of ruddier grapes slipping in. Its red berries all through the palate with a faint lick of herbal spice – simple done well, freshness on its side. That texture is so good. Makes you want to drink and drink. And it’s got fine edges and length.
Long, slow claps." 93 points Winefront.com.au


 

Product Description

Fermented as between 10-25% wholes bunches (with the reminder fermented as whole berries), and raised in old oak, this year's Junto is quite the delicate wine, exhibiting beautiful aromatics and a pure, lingering flavour. It shows a restraint not often associated with red wines of the McLaren Vale; the growers used very little Shiraz and Mataro this time around so as not to dominate the Grenache fruit, with its superb aromatics and soft juicy mouthfeel.

Pale in the glass yet bright red, it has a very pretty nose with red currant, mint and hints of Chinese five spice. The palate is light and snappy, with flavours of sour cherry and raspberry. The tannins are soft and ever so silky, yet the wine is held together by a lovely juicy acidity. Overall a fruitful, delicate wine with a balancing savoury quality to be drunk in its youth


"Grenache, shiraz and mataro are brought together here, with various parcels seeing various winemaking techniques, including whole bunches and longer macerations and all sorts. A lot of the fruit comes off Bondar’s own Rayner Vineyard, a sacred site in McLaren Vale, if you ask around or drink widely. The gist here seems to be ‘wine for easy approach’, though the architecture seems to have more intent.
