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!
