Chemin by Punt Roa Pinot Noir perfume of musk, raspberries, middle eastern spices and crushed berries with firm, complex whole bunch characters shining through.
Punt Road Chemin Pinot Noir, palate is silky, fine and textural with characters of plum, berries and star anise. Layers of flavour that culminate with a long, savoury finish.
In the 1850’s Punt Road was a quiet dirt road that met the Yarra River on the outskirts of a new settlement, Melbourne. The road was surrounded by some of the first commercial vineyards in Victoria, and was linked across the river by a punt, which would ferry people and goods to the other side. Punt Road remains today in the heart of cosmopolitan Melbourne.
A bridge now stands where the punt once was, and the vineyards have been re-established throughout the Yarra Valley, where the grapes for this wine are grown today. This year has seen the release of a duo of 100% ‘whole bunch’ wines, under the name ‘Chemin’ – a 2010 Syrah and 2010 Pinot Noir. Both offer a fantastic insight into what a brilliant winemaker Kate Goodman really is. Check them out for sure before they’re all gone!
