Some Young Punks by Punks Cabernet/Shiraz
This product is currently sold out.
A rich mouthful of lip-smacking, sensuously structured McLaren Cabernet and Clare Shiraz. An electrifying vibrant nose of ripe red cherry, cranberry, black fruit, aromatic smoke, vanilla, violets and treacle lead to a concentrated palate of cranberry and sour cherries, with more savoury flavours of black tapenade, herbs and a hint of tobacco. A precise and astute wine with plenty of interest.
With their punk attitude to winemaking, Colin McBryde, Jen Gardner and Nic Bourke make wines with charisma and attitude. “Each time we make a wine”, they say, “it may be the last wine we make – and if it isn’t worthy of being the last then it will never wear the Some Young Punks name.”
Their contemporary approach means minimal use of oak and short ferments to retain maximum punchy vibrancy. Famous for their striking pop art labels, the punks were on the front of the packaging revolution in Australia and always thought differently about how to package their wines. The trio believe it’s okay to judge these books by their covers, which are as bright and bold as the wines they clothe.
