An instant cellar of our wonderful 2008 vintage Punch wines, all drinking at or very near their prime. A fantastic way to appreciate how gracefully and deliciously Lance's Vineyard wines age. Very limited quantities, remarkable value!
Grown by us on our historic and iconic Lance's Vineyard, established 1976, the oldest vineyard in the Nillumbik subregion of the Yarra Valley. Time has shown this vineyard to consistently be one of Australia's most distinguished sites.
2008 Punch Lance's Vineyard Chardonnay x 2
"Bright green-quartz, almost glowing; the bouquet is very fragrant and pure, the palate at once concentrated yet elegant; white peach, nectarine and melon are all to be found, oak in its place. 95 Points" James Halliday Wine Companion 2011
2008 Punch Lance's Vineyard Pinot Noir x 2
"Similar colour and clarity to Close Planted; an elegant and highly fragrant bouquet, then a delicious stream of red and black cherry fruit running seamlessly along the palate; superb line and length. 96 Points" James Halliday Wine Companion 2011
2008 Punch Lance's Vineyard Close Planted Pinot Noir x 2
"Bright, light crimson-purple, admirable given that the wine was neither fined nor filtered; the ultra close planting (1.2 m x 1 m) has worked wonders with this vintage, the very intense, yet fine, dark berry flavours driving through the long palate and lingering finish. 96 Points" James Halliday Wine Companion 2011
The Pinot Noirs, being unfiltered, have developed a slight deposit in the bottle, so settling and careful pouring/decanting is recommended.
