Product Description

Junto is Spanish for "together", in this case, a union of old friends Grenache (70%), Shiraz (20%) Mataro (9%) and Counoise (1%). The Grenache is culled from three separate blocks: the lion's share from Bondar's own Rayner Vineyard, a grower five km away in McLaren Flat, and a second grower near Tatachilla. The Shiraz is also homegrown Rayner fruit, while the Mataro is sourced from a grower in the foothills of Willunga, on the famed Kurrajong soils. The tiny addition of Counoise is drawn from young plantings in the Rayner Vineyard. It was all wild-fermented with approx. 20% whole-bunches and raised in old oak. The blend is put together with the idea that Grenache is the hero, with Shiraz adding supporting flesh and the Mataro spice and structure/tannin. As always, Junto is a lively, vibrant wine with restraint, energy and sheer drinkability that has rarely been associated with the red wines of the McLaren Vale. An absolute steal for the money. - Bondar

"This blend of 70% grenache, 20% shiraz, 9% mataro and 1% counoise comes from a patchwork of blocks, mainly estate, and mainly grown on sand. The burst of acidity is a blessing, not bane. It's true that grenache and shiraz do all the heavy lifting, but the impact of the mataro (and even the 1% counoise) add shade to the bright sunny flavours of the wine." 95 points, James Halliday, Winecompanion.com.au
