The wine was fermented with wild yeasts and matured in mostly older French oak - with just one new French 500 litre puncheon in the mix - for around 12 months. This was followed by 3-4 months in tank, before being bottled in the winter without fining or filtration. The name ‘Violet Hour’ refers to the violet coloured sky under which Adrian Bondar and Selina Kelly picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first ever release of this wine (2012).
Hand-picked from the Blewitt Springs portion of the vineyards, this wine encapsulates the Bondar style; all fragrance, juicy fruit and lightness of touch. A blend of both old and younger vines, the younger Shiraz blocks give the wine brightness on the palate and pretty aromatics, while the older vines (some up to 65 years old, fermented as whole bunches) provide the savoury complexity, depth and structure.
