The old blocks of the Napoleone vineyard, planted between 1987 and 2001 using the I10V1 clone. Chardonnay looking a picture, 2017 Punt Road just released…2018 here in the making.


With everything else going on, did we tell you we had released the 2014 Punt Road Chardonnay Pinot Sparkling? Sorry! 3 years on lees, a beautiful fine bead, flavour, flavour, flavour and ready for summer…

Pinot Noir off to a flying start…and how’s the weather, just quietly? Magic.
Looking good for the weekend too, so head out to see us if you can.

Tim Shand has nailed this style. There’s no Cabernet Franc like it. Moreish and ridiculously juicy, it’s the business. As per the back label, “Bottled whilst bursting with fruit and juvenile charm.”

Wild, funky, fruity – delicious!

100% whole bunch and weighing in at only 12.5%, this is such a delightful medium bodied number.

Juicy is certainly the word with some acidity crunch for good measure. Whiffs of twigs, clove and a late charge from Ribena before blue and purple fruits glide through with a fine spice tickle at the death. Bloody moreish. I could drink buckets of this. A great wine for those keen to step outside their comfort zone for a relatively inexpensive outlay. Run to this.

Drink now to three years.
