Tasting Notes

This Punt Road Cabernet Sauvignon is equal parts Block 11 and Block 3 from the Napoleone Vineyard. Block 11 is typically very light on its feet, aromatic and red fruited. Block 3 is sturdier, with black olive and blackcurrant. They’ve come together nicely here from a warm year. A little bit of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec completes the blend. The wine was matured in French oak (30% new, 70% second and third use). Block 3 loves the char and tar, smoked charcuterie nuances of Nadalie oak, while Block 11 loves Taransaud’s pencil shavings and vanilla – so it’s all on display here. Thw wine came out of barrel for blending in May 2020 and was bottled in July 2020. It’s really nice to release it with some time in bottle before release, which is unheard of ’round here at the moment.

Winemakers Note

Handpicked, aiming for fruit flavours in the blackcurrant spectrum. Single block wine, as with the 2014 and 2015. Block 3, planted in 1987. SA125 clone. The emphasis is always on aquaeous maceration here, doing the grunt work in pump overs and plunges during cold soak and at the start of fermentation.Post ferment, the wine is pressed earlier than our neighbours. New oak is a mix of Taransaud, Saury and Bossuet. 25% new. Remaining is 2nd and 3rd use French barriques. It gets the best oak treatment of any Punt Road wine by a mile.
