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
Bright lemon with gold rim, nose is very open at first look. Floral notes, backed by aromas of white and yellow nectarines, lemon zest and yeasty notes. Palate is vibrant, with fine creamy bubbles, backed by well balanced freshness and acidity. Lovely drink with classy texture.
