Friends of Punch was born following the loss of our 2009 vintage fruit at Lance's Vineyard, St Andrews during the Victorian Bushfires.
It has been produced with help from other vineyards who generously lent their support by asking, how can we help? Our answer was simple - sell us some grapes! And they did. In each case they shared with us significant portions of their scant, wonderful crops.
We thank them sincerely.
Notes and Reviews
Made from barrel selection and some riper sections of Lance’s Vineyard. White peach, apricot flowers, red apple and flint. Palate is zesty, fresh, balanced with citrusy acidity, flavor complexity, minerality and great length. Truly a baby Punch!

|Elevage||10 months in oak barrels on lees with one stir (4th to 9th fill). Troncais and Allier 300L barrels, medium toast. Bottled without fining or filtration.|
