The names Punt Road and Airlie Bank recognise the important role our estate played in the history of grape growing in the Yarra Valley. On Melbourne’s Punt Road, against the bank of the Yarra River, once sat the Airlie Bank vineyard. It was from here in 1860 that Hubert De Castella, a Swiss immigrant and pioneering grape grower, acquired vine cuttings to plant 200 acres of vineyard in Coldstream. The wines produced from those historic vines quickly gained acclaim and recognition in Australia and Europe. This land would later become the home of the original St Hubert’s vineyard and then the Punt Road vineyard and winery.

Notes of raspberries, strawberry and spice. Vibrant red fruit and delicate tannins. This wine is made mainly from 30-year-old MV6 clone plantings, with younger blocks adding complexity. It's fermented with whole berries (90%) and whole bunches (10%), pressed to a combination of new (barely 15%) and used oak for maturation and malolactic conversion with the whole bunch component kept separate. After 10 months, the wines are then blended and bottled with no fining.
