Some Young Punks additions

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 amongst the new breed of interesting, young winemakers in Australia they aren’t moved by porty Shiraz and seeks 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 label sported by increasingly interesting and wholly unique wines.

We have added two new wines from the punks ‘Fierce Allure Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (only 482 cases) - produced from a single vineyard in Maclaren vale and Lust Collides Mataro 2009 - Dark, savoury and seductive Mataro. Wonderfully textured, layered with dark fruits, a spark in the mid-palate and a smooth, soft (only 524 cases)
