Quick Overview

It’s a layered, wonderfully pure Shiraz with vibrant fresh plum and iodine scented fruit along with some delicious meaty complexity. It’s both generous and medium-bodied, with a terrifically fresh, saline close. Seductive, yet with plenty of the signature finesse and energy that you find in all of this producer’s wines. Lovers of the previous releases will not be disappointed.


 

Product Description

Bondar’s Violet Hour is on one hell of a roll. The 2016 Violet Hour Shiraz won ‘Best Shiraz’ and ‘Best Single-Vineyard Shiraz’ at the 2018 McLaren Vale Wine Show, and the following two vintages picked up back-to-back 97s in Halliday’s Wine Companion. The new release does not suffer by comparison.


As always it was handpicked from the Rayner vineyard. This year, to be precise, it is a blend of 11 block vines, both young and old (some up to 70 years old). The wine was wild fermented naturally with a high portion of whole-bunches and maturation occurred in older French oak (no new barrels were used this year). This was followed by six months resting in tank, before it was bottled the second winter after harvest without fining or filtration.


It’s a layered, wonderfully pure Shiraz with vibrant fresh plum and iodine scented fruit along with some delicious meaty complexity. It’s both generous and medium-bodied, with a terrifically fresh, saline close. Seductive, yet with plenty of the signature finesse and energy that you find in all of this producer’s wines.
