Punt Road Yarra Chardonnay 2019

The wine is purely off the old blocks of the Napoleone vineyard, planted between 1987 and 2001 using the I10V1 clone. So much flavour this year, a top tier Yarra Valley chardonnay vintage. Fruit harvested from Napoleone Blocks 2 and 11A both of which have grey loam on clay base and are South-East facing. The fruit was crushed to the press to maximise flavour and solids. Rough racked to puncheons (20% new) for natural ferment with all the solids. 40% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. Lees stirred monthly. Bottled in November 2018. Notes of lime curd and stonefruit. On the palate, nougat, pineapple and ripe peach combine to make an elegant harmonious wine. - Tim Shand, Punt Road

Very surprised to see the last Punt Road Chardonnay we reviewed was vintage 2013. Anyway, this is hot of the press, so to speak. Plenty of struck match and funk, white nectarine, pine-lime, a little spice and nougat. It’s medium-bodied, quite savoury and complex, juicy lemon/lime, fine chalky texture, and an almost earthy finish of good length. A lot of bang for the bucks, as it were.
