Named after the coloured sky under which Andre Bondar and Selina Kelly picked the last bunches of Shiraz for their first-ever release of this wine, Violet Hour is a blend of fruit from 11 blocks in Bondar’s Rayner vineyard. It is intended to be a wine that encapsulates the Bondar style—fragrance, juicy fruit and lightness of touch. The winemaking is adapted to the season, both whole-bunch and destemmed fruit are employed, and the juice spends varying times on skins depending on the block. The 2021 was raised only in older oak and bottled unfiltered.
