Punt Road Wines Shiraz 2021 (6 Bottles) Yarra Valley

$190.00 GST Included


2019 Punt Road Shiraz comes from a very promising vintage – a season that may prove to be one of the best in the Yarra Valley in recent memory.

Plentiful frosty nights and heavy rains in winter delayed budburst, and spring continued in this mild (and wet) fashion. We had excellent canopies with slowly developing bunches. The mild conditions persisted into January and February. Warm, sunny days with crisp nights and mornings. Perfect for slow ripening, delicate flavours and acid retention. There was no disease threat from rain, and we harvested at leisure.

Single-site Shiraz from the Napoleone Vineyard’s Block 5 (70%) and Block 8 (30%). The vineyard has a southeasterly aspect and soils of alluvial loam on a clay base. The must was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak puncheons (10% new) from the Mercurey, Dargaud and Jaegle cooperages.

Shiraz is the variety that flies under the radar in the Yarra Valley, whose cool climate is ideally suited to bringing out the fragrance and spice of this variety in a crunchy, vivacious style. Tim Shand and the Punt Road team are renowned for turning on the excitement at an everyday price point, and that’s precisely what they do with this juicy, spiced cherry-drenched charmer.



About Punt Road Wines, Yarra Valley

Everything we do comes from our home in Coldstream…ideas are born here, the grapes are grown here, and our wines are crafted and shared here. As a family owned vineyard and winery, we aim to create wines that reflect the heritage of our site, and the independent, creative energy of the Yarra Valley. Winemaker Tim Shand guides the path of fruit from more than 150 acres of estate-grown vineyards.

Our Range….
Winemaker Tim Shand selects fruit from over 150 acres of estate-grown vineyards on our 300 acre farm. We’ve planted several varieties over the past 27 years to best suit this site including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. These varieties shine in different ways across these two distinctive expressions.

Our Philosophy…
“We only produce wines from our own vineyard in Coldstream, a deliberate, and to us, significant decision. It gives us the opportunity to put all our focus on our one patch of dirt and provides us with a greater understanding of our site along with 13 vintages of cellar memory to draw on.”  Tim Shand, Head Winemaker

Winemaking Technique…
Using minimalist intervention winemaking techniques allows us to deliver wines of outstanding quality, highlighting season variations.

They are wines that taste of where they come from, and though they’re steeped in history and stamped with the signature of their terroir, they’re more than ever relevant – and desirable – to the Australian diner of today.
