Tasting Note: A rich mouthful of lip-smacking, sensuously structured McLaren Cabernetand 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.

Producer Details: Some Young Punks epitomise the best of New Australia. The punks consist of Col McBryde (voted Australia's Young Gun Winemaker of the Year), Jen Gardner (self confessed nerdy yeast expert) and thirdly Nic Bourke. Like most of the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren't moved by porty Shiraz and seek instead a sense of place and restraint the wines, influenced by the best of the Old World and the New. Col McBryde is as unimpressed by flash-in-the-pan medal-winners that are short on provenance as he is by being hide-bound to the Old World, and carves his own niche. Yet being media savvy and having a sense of humour allows this ironically quietly-spoken but earnest bunch to market themselves outrageously and to bring a fresh approach to labelling. Expect to see increasingly alarming labels sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines. Grapes are carefully monitored and purchased locally.

In The Vineyard: From vines aged between 15 and 22 years old, the soils are brown sandy loam on clay base.

In The Winery: The wine spent between 6 - 15 days on the skins before it was pressed. The ferment was then finished off, off of skins. Malolactic fermentation then took place before maturing. Ageing took place over 11 months in a combination of neutral and French oak barriques.

Taffy - 28/02/2014

Great Aussie wine rich fruity flaviurs yet smooth with a lingering taste on the palate one of the best Aussie wine i have had in ages looking forward to trying the others in the range.

Definately NOT style over substance!

I have fallen in love with this delicious Red, Its refreshing that the makers care about creating an exciting wine rather than the pomp of many wine makers. Trouble is its so Moorish I cant bear to share it!
