About The Wine

Carefully crafting a spot on Rosé can be a tricky business. It may seem simple from the outside but there are a lot of decisions to be made along the way.

Take this fantastic Rosé from McLaren Vale outfit, Bondar. The fruit is picked from three sites, including from their famous home block, the Rayner vineyard. Two of the batches were fermented in ceramic egg, the third in barrel with some more pressings to get a little extra grip and "stuffing" in the mid palate.

Suffice to say, Andre has nailed this release. The 2017 is near impossible to put down.

Theirs is a wildly successful crack at this now insanely popular "Provence" inspired style of Rosé. A lovely 93 point review from Mike Bennie was always on the cards.

If you like your pinks dry but full flavoured with delicacy and power in equal proportion - you're going to love this!

About Bondar

Bondar is the baby of husband-and-wife team Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly, and winners of the 2017 Australian Wine Companion’s Best New Winery.

They have purchased the famous Rayner vineyard in McLaren Vale, crafting stunning Shiraz and Grenache from here, along with beautifully pure Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. I’ll leave it to them to describe what their extremely exciting venture is all about: “Our vision has always been to make wines that create a little intrigue, that are a little different. We want to make wines that are bright, structured, mid-weight yet concentrated in flavour with a savoury element.”

Super value, tiny production and delicious to drink!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Rose water, faint Turkish Delight, ultra perfumed with sweet spice, pomegranate, cranberry. So fine in the palate, bone china delicate, cranberry-tang, a web of ultra lacy yet firm, talc-like tannins. Great extension of flavour, great feel of freshness and vitality. Drink up!" - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

A pale, dry rosé made from the McLaren Vale, our beautiful home by the sea. We hand-picked Grenache vines early in the season, to capture the brightness; the fresh aromas and flavours that we love in this variety. And we crafted this delicate wine from the fruit, designed to be best enjoyed in its youth (now, or soon).
