Bondar Wines Junto GSM 2019

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

This wine brings together traditional friends Grenache (70%), Shiraz (20%) and Mataro (9%) with just a tiny touch of Counoise dropped in the mix (let’s call it 1%). Sourced from old vines, picked by hand, the fruit was gently handled in the winery and aged in old French oak. We tend to pick early as we can for this wine so that we can create a very fresh, bright wine, with red fruits and lovely herbal characters. There’s a life to the palate, a nerve, a tension as well which elevates the intentionally light palate to a more serious place. The blend is put together with the idea that Grenache really is the hero, with Shiraz adding supporting flesh and the Mataro spice and structure/tannin.
