2019 Bondar 'Junto' GSM | McLaren Vale, SA
JUNTO (Spanish, Portuguese): 'Together'
Grenache (88%) | Shiraz (6%) | Mataro (3%)
Sourced from old vines, picked by hand, the fruit was gently handled in the winery and aged in old French oak.
This has been picked early so creates a very fresh, bright wine, with red fruits and lovely herbal characters.
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.
