Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
Punt Road's Airlie Bank Sparkling Non Vintage Brut has been one of our longtime favourite Australian sparklings; always delivering high quality drinking at a very reasonable price. A blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir, all sourced from within the Yarra Valley, small portions were barrel fermented and given extended time on lees to build texture and complexity.

Aromas of citrus fruits and subtle apricot are complimented by a toasty, bready complexity. Fresh and vibrant with a focused palate structure of apple blossom and citrus characters with complex brioche notes. A perfect aperitif style sparkling wine that is sure to have wide appeal.

Only available for purchase in 6 bottle increments.
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.
Yarra Valley
Winemaking: This is a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir fruit sourced entirely from the Napoleone Vineyard in the Yarra Valley.

The wine sees full MLF, as well as small injections of new oak and brandy spirit.

Bouquet: Aromas of citrus fruits and subtle apricot, complimented by a doughy, bready complexity.

Palate: Fresh and vibrant with a focussed palate structure of apple blossom and citrus characters with complex brioche notes.
