Out in the vines this morning this morning with Head Winemaker Tim Shand and a new addition to our team Sarah Prowse (on right in picture). Sarah is an experienced winemaker with stints under her belt at Giant Steps, Yering Station, Brokenwood and Mitchelton Wines.
Tim and Sarah have been counting selected bays of Pinot Gris bunches across a 10 acre block to determine average yields for the upcoming vintage.
These vines are D1V7 clone Gris and produce a wine that is fragrant and textural.
A few Christmas parties at our place this week…and a few to come…don’t forget to tag us on your Punt Road Xmas Instagram post with @puntrdwines and#puntroadxmas and if we share it, you get a bottle of wine and 4 picnic glasses. Cheers!
Don’t need a fridge in New York right now…plenty of convenient snow around. #Repost @downundernyc (@get_repost)
