"The 2018 is a brighter wine, less structured and brooding than the 2017, but arguably more delicious.

100% Gamay grown on block 8 of the Napoleone Vineyard. Similar winemaking approach to 2017, with a very different result. The finished wine is 50% whole bunch, but this is made up of 1 x 100% whole bunch ferment, 1 x 50% whole bunch ferment, and an array of goon bags for the cab mac approach. Pressed to old puncheons, sat on lees (unsulphured) for 9 months, racked to tank for two months. No finings, minimally filtered.

The 2018 is a brighter wine, less structured and brooding than the 2017 (and less serious, but arguably more delicious). In terms of the vintage, it’s the same story as the 2018 Yarra pinots – a vintage of fruit purity and crunch. Tasting the wine (right) now, it is more generous and friendly despite having just been bottled. Lots of cherry and raspeberry with a nice bite from the bunch. - Tim Shand, Punt Road

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
