James' Review

The Poonawatta story is complex, stemming from 0.8ha of shiraz planted in 1880. When Andrew Holt's parents purchased the Poonawatta property, the vineyard had suffered decades of neglect, and the slow process of restoration began. While that was underway, the strongest canes available from the winter pruning of the 1880 block were slowly and progressively dug into the stony soil of the site. It took seven years to establish the 0.8ha Cuttings Block, and the yield is even lower than that of the 1880 Block. Second label, Monties Block, sits underneath The Cuttings (from the ?new' vines) and at the top is The 1880. The Riesling is produced from a single vineyard of 2ha hand-planted by the Holt family in the 1970s. Exports to Canada, France, Denmark, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China.
