Product Description

Grown on Block 3 on the Napoleone Vineyard in Coldstream on alluvial clay loam soil with a northwest aspect. SA125 clone, planted in 1987 and harvested in mid-March 2017. 100% destemmed, 10% drain off, cold soak for four days. Fermented with FX10 yeast to a maximum temperature of 25°C, pressed at zero baumé. Malolactic conversion and maturation in French barriques (25% new). Coopers were Taransaud, Saury and Nadalie. Small amounts of Petit Verdot and Merlot added. No finings, minimal fitration. Blended in June 2018, bottled in July 2018.
This is our most elegant, restrained release to date, a product of a mild and prolonged season. Jaffas and redskins on the nose, with a hint of bay leaf. The palate is savoury, but fresh and bright. Redskins again, set upon a core of blackcurrant fruit and melting tannin. - Tim Shand, Punt Road

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

"Bright crimson-purple; a clearly articulated cabernet from the fragrant bouquet through to the medium-bodied palate and long finish; cassis and a touch of earth and briar are all on the money, giving the wine length and authority, aided and abetted by savoury tannins and tempered oak."
94 Points Wine Companion


Punt Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
"Mid-crimson, bright; the fragrant and lifted bouquet reveals red fruits, crushed leaf and spicy oak; the medium-bodied palate if fresh, focused and meanders from fruit to fine-grained tannin structure with ease and delicacy; an elegant cabernet."
