    There is a higher proportion of Napoleone Vineyard fruit in the 2018 than the 2017. The Old Beenak Road portion of the wine would be just on 10%, but it brings spice and a little peacock’s tail to the finish, hallmarks of Upper Yarra.  The dominant Napoleone presence is an indicator that they are learning how to manage our old blocks better – all of Blocks 1, 7 and 12 made it in this year, which hasn’t happened before. Due to the sound, rude health of the fruit this year, they were able to complete 100% natural primary and malolactic fermentation. The wine was fermented in a combination of 5t and 1t open fermenters, three day cold soaks, and ferment temp between 21 and 27 degrees. The batches were pumped over twice per day through fermentation, and plunged/stomped when they were roaring in the middle. Left on malo lees throughout the winter and spring unsulphured. The wine was racked to tank in early December, and bottled in January with no finings.

    Producer

    Tim Shand heads a dynamic, progressive young winemaking team at this James Halliday five star-rated winery. Punt Road is a standard-bearer for wines of character, drinkability and a clear, proud Yarra Valley stamp. It has history on its side and cards stacked in its favour for a very bright future. The property was founded on site of the St. Huberts Vineyard planted in the 1860s by Paul and Hubert de Castella - some of the first vines in the Yarra Valley and one of the cornerstones of Australian fine-wine tradition. Punt Road owners the Napoleone family took advantage of a tremendous head start when they planted vineyards here in the 1980s. All these years later, Tim and the team bring restless perfectionism to this intimately understood site and its mature vines. The Punt Road wines have never been better.* Cellarhand

    Region

    First planted with vines in 1838, the Yarra Valley is the birthplace of the Victorian wine industry. It ceased production in the fortified wine boom in the 1920s and planting began again in earnest in the 1960s with modern pioneers such as Dr Bailey Carrodus, Guill de Pury and Dr John Middleton paving the way for the Yarra Valley to become one of Australia’s premier wine growing regions today. Their Yarra Yering, Yeringberg and Mount Mary wineries remain regional heroes, firm favorites such as Coldstream Hills and new star wineries such as Oakridge and Giant Steps excel with stunning examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling are also no slouch in the region and the exciting new breed of wineries such as Bobar, Mac Forbes, Hoddles Creek, Salo, Timo Mayer, Thousand Candles and Proud Primary Produce are proof of the Yarra Valley’s diversity and understanding of place. Local Knowledge: The restaurant at Oakridge Wines is one of the finest regional dining experiences in the land…. Have a glass of 864 Chardonnay while you are there.
