5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"We are a little family wine company making wines from our favourite regions McLaren vale and Adelaide Hills. Our home is the iconic Rayner Vineyard in McLaren Vale. We want to make wines that are lighter, brighter, more savoury, structured and intriguing. Different." - Bondar

"Husband and wife Selina Kelly and Andre Bondar began a deliberately unhurried journey in 2009, which culminated in the purchase of the celebrated Rayner Vineyard post-vintage '13. Andre had been a winemaker at Nepenthe wines for 7 years, and Selina had recently completed a law degree, but was already somewhat disillusioned about the legal landscape. They changed focus, and began to look for a vineyard capable of producing great shiraz. The Rayner Vineyard had all the answers, a ridge bisecting the land, Blewitt Springs sand on the eastern side, and the Seaview, heavier clay loam soils over limestone on the western side. They are continuing to close-plant counoise, and mataro, carignan and cinsaut will follow. An Adelaide Hills Syrah is in their sights." - James Halliday
