Some Young Punks Passion Has Red Lips Cabernet ShirazRegular price £16.50 Save £-16.50
Produced by exciting new young winemakers Some Young Punks, this is a luscious blend of McLaren Cabernet and Clare Valley Shiraz. Some Young Punks Passion Has Red Lips Cabernet Shiraz has sensuous, generous fruit and an alluring bouquet.
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.
