Bondar's Nero d'Avola comes from a young block of vines (grafted onto '90s Cabernet Sauvignon rootstock) on the rocky clays of the Willunga foothills, right on the southern end of the McLaren Vale region. Andre Bondar keeps the winemaking intentionally light-handed, crafting a wine to be enjoyed in its youthful splendour.

This is only the fourth release of this wine. This year 60% of the fruit was de-stemmed, wild-fermented and moved to old oak for élevage, while the remainder was fermented as whole bunches in ceramic egg, remaining on skins for three months. The two parcels were blended in October and bottled unfined and unfiltered. 

Soft tannin and seductive raspberry aromatics set the tone, while a hit of spice and savoury notes bring moreish complexity. A delicious, lip-smacking young red that can be enjoyed in the warmer months.

Reviews

“A blend of tank and egg ferment, the latter with 40% whole bunches. The former, raised in older oak. Young vines, handled gently. It shows. With a brisk chill, this could be quaffed as a richer rosato or even a light red. Delicious! Dark cherry, amaro, clove and lozenge with a whiff of wild fennel and greenery at the finish for levity. A dangerously easy mid-weighter to drink a great deal of. Drink now. Screw cap.”
